A model of queuing is proposed for the modeling of incidents handling process in the information security management system. Incident handling process is described by the model of M/G/1, which is carried out as mixed-priority services, and analytic expressions of the average waiting time are given for three priority classes, which are the absolute, relative and without priority modes of service. The model is proposed for the evaluation of the efficiency of the performance of the processing of information security incidents by including the penalty functions basing on the characteristics of the probabilities.
