Cyber Crisis Management: Ready, Set? Prepare to Respond and Recover
Can your organization survive a disruptive cyber event? While organizations cannot anticipate or prevent every cyberattack, they must be prepared to respond to a significant cyberattack at a moment’s notice. This panel will discuss incident response readiness and how organizations should prepare to weather the storm of a cyberattack, including effectively managing the many legal and business work flows that arise in the wake of a significant cyberattack. The panel will focus in particular on internal forensic and root cause investigations, regulatory investigations, and cooperation with law enforcement.
