What is BIZOPS-7 Security Incident Management Plan control?

A security incident management plan, or incident management policy, is the first step in building an incident program. TrustCloud gets you started with an out-of-the-box policy, but it is important to make this policy customized. As an organization, you must define what an incident is and the types of incidents that can occur in your environment. There is no right or wrong incident management policy, as each organization is unique.
