Topic: Incident Response Framework and Best Practices
Abstract: Cyber threats are a top concern today for corporations and governments. A well-defined incident response plan can differentiate between a minor disruption and a catastrophic breach. A robust incident response framework typically consists of several key phases, including establishing an incident response team, defining roles, developing comprehensive plans, identifying critical assets and potential threats, and creating communication protocols.
While an incident response framework is essential, the security strategy should include policies with best practice guidelines that advocate regular training, simulation exercises, asset management, and being current on potential threats. Additionally, clear communication, agile detection approach, continuous monitoring, containment and eradication simulation, and backup and restoration practice are vital to effectively managing an incident’s aftermath.
The current webinar aims discusses how to establish a well-structured incident response framework supported by best practices to minimize damage, protect sensitive data, and maintain an organization’s reputation.
