What are your recommendations for Incident Response books?

I was planning on going for GCIH, but our companies budget hadn't gone through, so I moved to my backup plan for CEH.  I still want to get a grasp on IR doing self-study with hopes of getting my company to send me to GCIH training.  I wanted to start reading Counter Hack Reloaded, but wanted to know what other recommendations everyone has for IR.

Thank you!

Hey Unsupported!

I would start by looking at the free resources here:

http://www.ethicalhacker.net/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,54/topic,3488.msg16165/#msg16165

And Security Focus has some good (a little old) whitepapers too:

As for a book, other than GCIH books i only own:

Incident Response: A Strategic Guide to Handling System and Network Security Breaches

Which is a classic imo

Good luck!

Hello unsupported!

The links by Jhaddix and Jason pretty much covers it all and I think would be sufficient to help you get a good grasp of the subject.
In case you want  some reviews of the books you should go for I suggest reading this article by Tony Bradley. Perhaps these would be enough to give you a nice start.

NIST has lots of great papers on this (and other) subjects. NIST 800-61 is a great resource. I especially found the example scenarios helpful since it will allow you to go through some example situations before (hopefully) one actually happens.
