The basic staffing requirement of an incident response function is that there be some individual or individuals able to receive and respond to reports during the function's operating hours. The speed of response should be set as part of the function's agreed operating policy, however the working arrangements should allow for emergency situations where action to resolve a problem needs to take priority over all other normal work.

From the preceding discussion it is clear that any organisation connected to Janet must have at least a basic response capability to deal with security incidents as required by its Janet contract. There are also good reasons why the organisation should not be content with this minimum but should provide additional functions for the benefit of its own users and its operation. This extended capability is likely to involve people and groups beyond the basic security incident response group, some of whom may be located in a different part of the management structure.
