Do you know what steps to take when you have an IT security breach? Once a breach occurs, you won't have time to create a plan; therefore, you likely won't take the right steps toward recovery. Creating an Incident Response Plan (IRP) before disaster strikes is a critical step toward ensuring that your organization can recover with minimal disruption.
While most organizations have a plan in place, few maintain them and fewer still really test and push them to the brink so that they know exactly what to do when the inevitable cyber attack happens for real.
Objectives of the Presentation
- Identify threats that need an Incident Response Plan
- Differentiate the most effective response methods
- How to develop an effective and comprehensive Incident Response Plan
- Proven processes to manage detection and remediation of lost data
- The critical actions companies often fail to execute following a breach
- Identify internal and external communication needs
- List the responses needed in your company
- Isolate operational challenges and counter-actions
Why Should you Attend
In today’s world, every organization no matter how large or small needs an Incident Response plan in place to quickly manage and address the consequences of a breach. How your business responds to a security incident can have a profound impact on its ability to recover from the attack and prevent it in the future. The volatility of today’s threat landscape makes incident response (IR) more challenging than ever. It is no longer sufficient to image hard drives and restore from backups. You must hunt down the attacks before they spread.
This presentation will provide you with valuable insights into building a dynamic and agile IR program. In this Incident Response webinar, Cyber Security expert Robert E. Davis will advise users on how a well-designed, pressure-tested incident response plan can save your organization from significant financial, reputational, and regulatory issues.
