Everything you always wanted to know about incident response (*but were afraid to ask and for a good reason)
Paul Schofield
The threat landscape has changed yet again. What was several years ago an era of advanced attackers seeking for valuable data, has transformed to be global disruptive data related plagues, back winded by nation-states seeking to dictate agenda and terms.
In respect to the evolving threat landscape, organizations came to realize that compromise is inevitable and have started to look for ways to respond and quickly in order to prevent the next data breach or disruption. The evolving incident response process holds in store a great challenge as the process effectiveness metric is fairly easy to measure.
Do you actually know how effective is your current SOC/IR/MDR in detecting, validating, containing and remediating infections in the environment? Are you ready to win the race to your own data?
