What is this control about?

An incident management policy is the first part in building an incident program. TrustCloud gets you started with an out-of-the-box policy, however, it is important to make this policy your own by customizing it. As an organization, you must define what an incident is and the type of incidents that could happen in your environment. There is no right or wrong here as each organization is unique.
