One of the grading components, in operational area, was about incident management. Security agencies must be able to provide the evidence of electronic incident security management to report, manage, and document incident. You will gain 35 points by fulfilling this requirement!
But first of all, we are going to take a look on what incident management is and how it should be done.

Incident Management System

Incident is unplanned interruption to an organization or to a service that could lead to loss of its function or operation. While Incident Management System (IMS) is a combination of facilities, equipment, personnel, procedures and communications operating within a common organizational structure, designed to aid in the management of resources during incident. IMS usually dealt with either incident response team (IRT), incident management team (IMT) or Incident Command System (ICS).
Those with responsibilities have to react, understand, and respond to incident fast in order IMS to be maximized. They also should have access to as much relevant data as possible about the incident in the shortest possible time.

How to report incident?

An incident report needs to include all the essential information about the accident or near-miss. The report-writing process begins with fact finding and ends with recommendations for preventing future accidents.
  • Find the facts

A good incident report should be able to gather and record the followings.

    • Date, time, and specific location of incident
    • Details of involved parties
    • Details of witnesses
    • Event leading to incident
    • Specific injuries
    • Damages caused by the incident
  • Determine the sequence

Incident report should contain the sufficient details and be described in a way that the reader can clearly picture what happened. We can add photos of the incident scene to help the readers understand what happened.

  • Analyze

To help those with responsibilities giving a quick and proper response, an incident report should contain a deep analysis of the cause of the incident, such as: primary cause and other contributing factors.

  • Recommend

The last is recommendation for immediate action, such as preventive action plan so that the incident will not happen again.


How to manage it?

When an incident occurs, incident stabilization activities (e.g. firefighting, damage assessment, property conservation) may be underway at the scene of the incident. Others assigned to support incident stabilization, business continuity or crisis communications activities will report to an emergency operations center (EOC). The emergency operations center is a physical or virtual location from which coordination and support of incident management activities is directed.
