The thing about Incident Response, just like Business Continuity (and insurance), is that we all hope the scenarios we know can happen never actually occur. However, the point of planning is to anticipate the bad things happening and have a plan to deal with those incidents, should they occur.

While can be difficult to document a response for Incident Response scenarios that have never occurred, building out step-by-step scenarios into an Incident Response Playbook might just save your organization time, money, resources, or even the business itself is something bad does happen. How do you create your own Incident Response Playbook?

This presentation will cover the following areas/topics:

  • Regulatory requirements of an Incident Response Plan (IRP)
  • Components of a valuable IRP
  • Threat Assessments
  • What is an Incident Response Playbook?
  • Testing Your Incident Response Playbook
  • Using Your Playbook to improve your IRP

Target Audience: Information security officer, IT manager, risk officer, internal auditor, CIO.

It’s time to shift our thinking when it comes to security awareness training. Yearly education and testing just doesn’t cut it in today’s cyber world. Security awareness is a topic we should have in front of our people on a much more consistent basis.

However, as we all know, creating a culture in any environment involves more than words or flipping a switch — it involves thoughtful and deliberate action across the organization, as well as accountability for that culture. Culture also has to start at the TOP of the organization, or it will be meaningless downstream. Overall, the goal of a Culture of Cybersecurity is to make security the first think we think about, as opposed to the last.

Join us for this session will include:

  • Cyber Threat’s New normal
  • People, Process, and Technology — which is the weakest link?
  • Compliance-based security awareness training
  • Proactive Security Awareness Training
  • Building an Effective Security Awareness Training Program
    • Directors/Executive Management
    • Employees
    • Customers
  • Topical training ideas
  • Why accountability matters most

A financial institutions’ Board of Directors has the ultimate responsibility for securing customer information, as well as the responsibility for approving financial investments into cybersecurity, creating accountability throughout the institution for security operations, and setting clear expectations for management.

  • Trends in cybersecurity
  • Cybersecurity regulatory expectations of the Board
  • The biggest challenges facing the Board and cybersecurity
  • A framework for asking better questions

When you arrive at work today, your computer screen shows a message asking for $52,000 to access your files, and you have 48 hours to pay or you lose your data. Does this scenario keep you up at night? It sure has kept the employees of the City of Atlanta up most nights in the second quarter of 2018 as they recovered from a SamSam ransomware infection that shut down a significant portion of their network for months. In the case of shipping company Mearsk, they lost over $200 million from the NotPetya ransomware attack. They were required to conduct a complete infrastructure overhaul, which included the reinstallation of 4,000 servers and 45,000 PCs according to a ZDNet article. If you recall, the 2017 NotPetya ransomware attack never had a successful payment mechanism to get your data back. It resulted in the complete destruction of systems for thousands of businesses in eastern Europe.

Ransomware is evolving from a wallet stealing threat to a weapon of mass destruction that has the power to cripple businesses or even countries. There are many different directions that ransomware has taken over the past few years; as it finds its place as a major threat to our businesses.
