Add This to Your IR Plan Before It’s Too Late

CISO Panels

As the Scout motto states: Be prepared. Whether you’re camping in the woods, training for the Olympics, or practicing for a cyber incident, preparation is essential. With data security in general and incident response in particular, CISOs must ensure all members of the organization participate in monthly or quarterly table-top exercises. The traditional model – requiring employees to watch a training video once a year – is insufficient. Table-tops and incident training scenarios, while time consuming, are more than a best practice. They are essential for proper incident response preparedness.

CISO Street moderated a virtual CISO panel and asked panelists to share their perspectives on current cyber trends and challenges. In this video, Jason Lewkowicz, Global CISO for Cognizant, and Heather Hinton, CISO for RingCentral, and Pedro Serrano, CISO for Grand River Dam Authority, discuss the challenges of creating and sustaining incident response plans.

CISO Street’s recent webinar, Incident Response Best Practices, takes a deep dive into this critical topic. Executives from Microsoft, FireEye, and Accellion share their experiences and lessons learned from recent cybersecurity incidents to help cybersecurity leaders mitigate and navigate the next cyberattack. Watch the replay here.
