Incidents within an organization are usually dealt with by an Incident Response Team (IRT), or an Incident Management Team (IMT). These team roles are often defined beforehand or (in emergency situations) during the event.
Although some of the details vary by company, their product(s), and the severity of the effect on the world outside of the company (i.e., a small company will probably not have the same effect as say a nuclear plant), the roles assigned normally consist of common elements. For example:
- Comms Lead
- Operations Lead
- Technical Lead
- Product Owner
Note: In some cases, specialized team positions, such as public affairs and safety, can report directly to the Incident Commander (IC) when the event warrants establishment of those positions.
