Security incident management is one of the critical areas that offers valuable information to security experts, but still lacks much development. Currently, several security incident database models have been proposed and used. The discrepancies of such databases entail that worldwide incident information is stored in different formats and places and, so, do not provide any means for Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) collaboration. This paper presents an architecture based on

Our framework enhances the incident management process by allowing the law enforcement units to (a) collect the required evidence from incident data that are spread through a number of different incident management systems; (b) transform, clean, and homogenize them; and, finally, (c) load them to a central database management system. Such architecture can also be beneficial by minimizing the mean time between the appearance of a new incident and its publication to the worldwide community.
