13. Discuss the purpose of the CSIRT and some of the team member roles using the text Internet and/or your job as reference for full credit “A Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT, pronounced "see-sirt") is an organization that receives reports of security breaches, conducts analyses of the reports and responds to the senders.” (Rouse, 2012). A computer Security Incident Response team in a huge requirement for big corporations, and is something that most have. I work at EMC2, where they have hundreds of computers if not thousands that are all connected somehow to the network. They have tons of different facilities throughout the world, they all connect to the EMC email servers, and they can all connect to different drives on the network. Just because one computer might not have access to a drive, doesn’t mean that someone might not force their way in. With that being said, a CSIRT is there to respond in case there is an incident that needs to be dealt with, that would be separate from the IT department.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
