Developing and Testing an Effective Incident Response Program

Part of the Dark Reading Cybersecurity Crash Course

If your organization doesn't have a plan for handling a major data breach, you're already in trouble. In order to swiftly and effectively respond to a cyber compromise, you must develop a program for first response in the data center, and downstream response in the business units and in the public eye. This session offers some guidance on how to build an incident response plan that can identify and repair compromises as quickly as possible -- and how to test and practice that plan so that you're ready for the real thing.
