Incident Response (IR) Preparedness: Developing an effective IR program

Event details

There are two types of companies in the world: those that have been breached, and those that don’t know it yet. Variations of this well-known adage circulate among cybersecurity professionals, and with good reason. 2020 cybersecurity predictions build on what we already know to be true: threats are increasing, tools to carry out these threats are becoming even more widely accessible, and the skill and expertise needed to successfully execute a cyberattack continue to fall – these days, anyone can become a cybercriminal.

In the face of such a discouraging forecast, it’s become imperative that organizations embrace the shift from prevention to detection and – perhaps most critically – response. By devoting attention to incident response (IR) planning, companies are equipped to more quickly and efficiently handle an incident, helping to reduce the impact and overall risk – and also improving their cyberresiliency. Developing an incident response program, also known as a playbook, lays out strategy, responsibilities, and a communication plan so that all personnel have a clear understanding of what their role will be in case of an incident.

The good news is that there are steps organizations can take to not only strengthen their cybersecurity posture, but to prepare for what many have deemed is inevitable.

In this webinar, you’ll be able to learn:

  • The steps in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) IR process: planning, detection and analysis, containment, eradication and recovery, and post-incident activity
  • Some of the pitfalls and challenges organizations face when dealing with incident response preparedness
  • What it takes to build an effective program: how to approach it, who should be on the team, stages of planning
  • How to continue evolving and building out your existing program to meet ongoing needs
