Objectives of the Presentation:

Why should you Attend:
As organizations begin to build their incident response capability, they are looking to determine the best strategy for putting such a structure in place. They not only want to know what has worked well for others, but also want some guidance on the process and requirements they must follow to establish an effective incident response capability. Designing a CSIRT Training program, Tests and Simulations are key if an organization wants to be prepared to respond to Breach, Malware and more. The reason that so many companies have failed to respond in a quick efficient manner is poor preparation.
