ISSA-LA June Dinner Meeting

June 20 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Topic: Scary stories from the front lines of Incident Response
Incident Response (IR) is one of the most important aspects of Cybersecurity, and it is often overlooked until it is too late. “We have a plan” is a common response when asked about IR, but has it been tested? The last time there was an incident, did it go smoothly? Does the organization even know if there is currently an incident? And has the difference between an “event” and an “incident” been defined anywhere in your policies? When should you call Law Enforcement? How is privilege handled during an IR?
This session will:
– answer these questions while charting a course for success when involved in an Incident Response.
– help a member of the IR team ask questions about their current plan and ensure that they are covered.
– review real-world examples and ways to reduce the anxiety and uncertainty of an IR.
