Preparation Can Make or Break Your IR Program, Alissa Torres, certified SANS instructor
Security teams are typically in reactive mode when faced with a breach. Their efficiency and effectiveness in handling a security incident largely hinges on work the team has done prior to “game day”. The Preparation stage of incident response is the lynch pin on which all other stages depend. Alissa Torres, certified SANS instructor, speaks on the key elements of preparation and the need to identify a security team’s gaps in technology, process and skillset before they are tested to their limits. She will provide best practices around defining roles and responsibilities, creating buy-in and garnering support from upper management and data-owning business units. Alissa will address ways to assess your organization’s IR readiness and prevent communications barriers that occur when IR goals are not fully aligned with service level agreements (SLAs) and business continuity.
