CERT Societe Generale provides easy to use operational incident best practices. These cheat sheets are dedicated to incident handling and cover multiple fields in which a CERT team can be involved. One IRM exists for each security incident we're used to dealing with.

These cheat sheets have been written in English and Russian, and translated into Spanish by Francisco Neira from the OAS.

CERT Societe Generale would like to thank SANS and Lenny Zeltser who have been a major source of inspiration for some IRMs.

Feel free to contact us if you identify a bug or an error in these IRMs.
