If SOC analysts take a more proactive approach, incident responders tend to be more reactive—and for good reason. These cybersecurity experts are on-call to jump into action as soon as an urgent incident occurs. They document the incident, analyze the threat, follow the correct security protocol, and perform a post-mortem to protect against similar incidents in the future.
When they aren’t mitigating high-risk threats, incident responders work on other projects, like managing enterprise cybersecurity solutions. Incident responders are particularly important for organizations that store valuable information, like medical records or financial data.
