Measuring Your Cybersecurity Plan with a Tabletop Exercise
Speaker: Thomas Schwab - Senior Consultant IT Security
Duration: 60 mins
Most organizations establish Cybersecurity Incident Response Plans (CIRP) with great intentions of leveraging them during security breaches. The reality is, often, once a CIRP is established it gets filed away to collect dust on a shelf until a breach occurs, leaving it out of date and out of mind. If a breach occurred tomorrow, would your organization know the proper steps and procedures to eradicate the threat, who the key stake holders are and the communications flow, when and how to reach out to a third-party for support? All of these are included as a part of your incident response plan, but using a dusty CIRP as a guide for the first time during a breach is not a plan – it's a disaster waiting to happen. Testing your plan prior to an incident is the key to minimize the duration, impact and cost of a breach to your organization.
During this interactive webinar, Thomas Schwab, Senior Incident Response Consultant at Secureworks, will share the importance of testing your CIRP plan through regular tabletop exercises to help identify your organization's strengths and weaknesses, and further the development of your proactive security capabilities.
