Sensemaking is a critical activity in organizations. It is a process through
which individuals ascribe meanings to events which forms the basis to
facilitate collective action. However, the role of organizations, technology
and individuals and their interaction in the process of sensemaking has not
been sufficiently explored. This novel study seeks to address this gap by
proposing a framework that explains how the interplay among organizations,
technology and individuals enables sensemaking in the process of cybersecurity
incident response. We propose that Organizations, Technology, and Individuals
are the key components that interact in various ways to facilitate enactment,
selection and retention activities (Sensemaking activities) in Incident
Response. We argue that sensemaking in Incident Response is the outcome of this
interaction. This interaction allows organizations to respond to cybersecurity
incidents in a comprehensive manner.
