How will you respond to the inevitable?
As cyber threats grow more sophisticated, it’s not a matter of if an organization will be hit by a cyber attack, but rather when an attack will occur. In 2012, organizations reported 47,000 security incidents and 621 confirmed data breaches, according to the 2013 Data Breach Investigation Report by Verizon. The consequences of these incidents are severe. A study published by the Digital Forensics Association (DFA) revealed that organizations spend an average of 68 hours fixing damage if an account is compromised and 141 hours if new accounts are opened. Moreover, the DFA estimated the total cost of breaches to be $139 billion during a four-year time period.
The resulting damage from an inevitable data breach depends completely on an organization’s incident response capabilities and its ability to shorten the time an attacker is inside its network. During an Incident Management Workshop, WWT Security Practice experts review the full skill sets required for an organization to effectively contain and remediate a data breach, as well as deliver participants personalized skill and capability assessments.
The WWT Incident Management Workshop is a two- to four-hour strategic whiteboard session designed to help participants gain a better understanding of where their organizations stand today in responding to a data breach and what steps are needed for a holistic approach to incident management. Experts explore areas like measuring and defining an incident, differentiating between a threat and a risk, proper internal and external communications after a data breach, the remediation process, and real-world incident scenarios based on the experiences of instructors.
This workshop gives your organization the opportunity to evaluate and strengthen the processes necessary to establish an incident response plan through people-based solutions. After an Incident Management Workshop, participants will be armed to tackle the pervasive challenge of limiting their organizations’ exposure in the face of staffing challenges and growing technology endpoints.
