- Deciding the structure of CSIRT report and authority
- Recognizing the required resources
- Defining interfaces and interactions
- Defining the roles, responsibilities and the corresponding authority
- Documenting the workflow
- Establishing corresponding procedures and policies
- Evolving an implementation plan along with soliciting the feedback

Components of building effective team
The successful and effective team determines the success of the team. As commented by Goetsch and Davis (2014), communication is the key to a successful team. Effective communication among the team members helps in creating a strong bond and positive working environment. The team members are able to use their strengths thereby, covering the weakness of the team members. Additionally, effective communication helps in clear flow o information within the team thereby, keeping each member updated about the progress. On the other hand, trust, respect and commitment help in laying the foundation of the team thereby, determining the working environment and success of the team (Dyer & Dyer, 2013). Flexibility, adaptability, and independence are also crucial components of the effective team, as this encourages the team members thereby, enhancing their dedication towards their roles and responsibilities (Myerson, 2012).
In this discussion forum, it can be concluded that CSIRT is an important team that helps in dealing with security breaches of the organizations along with evaluating the reports and sending it to the respective people. An effective CSIRT can be developed by flowing the essential steps. Additionally, communication, trust, respect, adaptability, flexibility, and independence are the pillars of building an effective team.
