Managing Your Incident Response Bench

Having the right talent when you need it most

A major security breach will push the boundaries of your team's skillsets, resources and budget. However, its successful resolution will depend on the people, skillsets and experience they have to quickly and efficiently perform all aspects of incident response, from detection and forensics to absolute eradication of the threat from your environment. Having the right expertise available beforehand will make all the difference between a fast, thorough resolution and a long, costly mess.


Jeff Schilling, director of our Incident Response and Digital Forensics team and former chief of current operations, U.S. Army Cyber Command, deconstructs the Incident Response function and breaks it into its core components in terms of expertise needed. Jeff will give a blunt assessment of skills that are critical and how to evaluate skill levels. Finally, Jeff will discuss models for building and maintaining an optimal Incident Response function that satisfies your organization's needs within the constraints of your resources.
