In this article, two essential elements of contemporary cybersecurity—network forensics and incident response—are described in general terms. Although incident response is the process of locating, containing, and recovering from security problems, network forensics comprises the gathering, analysis, and preservation of digital evidence from network traffic. The article examines the value of incident response planning, incident response best practices, and the advantages of successful incident response. It also discusses the methods and tools employed in network forensics, such as intrusion detection, log analysis, and packet capture. Organizations may lessen the effects of security incidents and better defend themselves from upcoming threats by giving these two aspects of cybersecurity priority.
