An Indiana Bankers’ Association Workshop!

security monitoring architectureIncident Response Management:

The new NIST Cyber Security Framework is heavy on Incident Response.  Executives are starting to talk like “it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.”

When we choose “accept” as a risk response decision, we rely on our ability to respond if a threat truly does exploit a vulnerability.  Even when we select “mitigate,” controls can sometimes break.  Technology never works the way it’s supposed to.  Disasters happen.  Thus we have all developed . . . whether formally or informally . . . our Incident Response Processes.  This workshop will help streamline your processes that mitigate CyberSecurity risk.

June 4th, 2015  9am to 4pm
