Building Your Incident Response Program

By Vigilize | Thursday, October 20, 2011 - Leave a Comment

Dan Hadaway and Chad Smith are presenting their workshop titled “Building Your Incident Response Program – “Do we HAVE to tell our customers?”” through the Indiana Bankers Association. This workshop is scheduled for November 17, 2011.

Program Overview
Every time we choose “accept” as a risk response decision, we rely more heavily on our ability to respond when a threat truly does exploit a vulnerability. Even when we select “mitigate” and implement new controls, we do so knowing that those controls will sometimes break. We know the notion of 100% security is a myth. There’s always that event nobody could predict. Our defenses will eventually be breached. This workshop will help you create a program that addresses residual technology risk.

Seminar Topics

  • The FFIEC standards vs. the Law vs. Examiner Focus vs. Effective Information Security Strategy.
  • Fitting Incident Response into your existing IT Governance program.
  • Creating an Incident Response Policy that your Board understands.
  • Creating the Incident Response Team.
  • Incident Response Team responsibilities and how to streamline meetings for maximum productivity.
  • Incident response planning.
  • Creating and using a decision tree.
  • Integrating incident response into your existing Risk Management Program.
  • Identifying Potential Incidents to Plan for (knowing that the one that will hit is the one we didn’t plan for!)
  • Managed Security Service Providers and how to put them on your team.
  • Monitoring techniques, reporting methodologies, and how to maximize their value.
  • When do we have to inform our customers?
  • Dealing with the Media, your Customers, and your Employees during an incident.
  • When to bring law enforcement in, and how to actually get something done.
  • Forensics: Why, What, When, and How.
