Topic: How Modernizing Incident Response Processes Can Help Stop Cybercrime
Cybercrime has skyrocketed as businesses transitioned to a remote work culture in the wake of the pandemic. Ransomware attacks surged 93% in the last six months, fueled by an innovative attack technique called Triple Extortion.
The faster organizations can detect and respond to data breaches and security incidents, the less likely they will significantly impact the data, customer trust, reputation, and revenue.
This webinar focuses on why the incident response process should include contingencies for every known scenario and why it is important to keep working with the plan—known scenarios or threat models change rapidly as new threats emerge. We can design and implement the most elaborate security response, but attackers rarely follow the blueprint we think they will. It is important to include every lesson learned in the real world, as well as the information we’ve learned from others’ mistakes.
- How often do organizations need to review their Incident Response plan?
- Why Incident Response plans must keep up with external and internal changes to mitigate repercussions.
- How modernizing Incident response processes can ensure standardization, compliance, and rapid response.
