Making the Case for Incident Response; It’s Strictly Business

Given today’s threat landscape, there is no such thing as 100% security. That means every organization will eventually experience a data breach or other form of security incident. A coordinated response is critical to limiting the severity of the incident. Yet, around one-third of organizations don’t have incident response plans in place, even though an incident could have a lasting impact on an organization’s finances, reputation, or even its existence.

Robust incident response plans take time to develop and personnel to implement – something often in short supply when resources are limited. But, there are many reasons you can’t afford NOT to have an incident response plan, including upcoming requirements for data breach notification imposed by the EU’s GDPR.

In this recorded webinar, Dr. Eric Cole discussed the sound business rationale for establishing a repeatable incident response process at your organization. Armed with this information, you’ll be able to educate and inform decision-makers on the need to invest the necessary resources to establish and maintain incident response capabilities.
