Staffing and Training a Cyber Incident Response Team

Discover our webinar with Dark Reading, featuring Max Vetter, Gal Shpantzer, and Tim Wilson.

Today’s enterprises are under attack. Whether it’s malware, ransomware, social engineering, or targeted exploits, security teams must be ready to detect these cyber attacks, analyze the threat, and launch a quick and effective response. Is your organization ready?

There are a wide variety of IT security tools available for cyber incident response. But most organizations have discovered that it’s people – the analysts and technicians who make up the cyber response team – that provide the key knowledge needed to recognize the exploits and instigate critical actions in the event of a cybersecurity incident.

Attend this webinar and you'll:

  • Get insight on how to build and train a cyber incident response team
  • Learn what to look for as you’re staffing up, including the experience and certifications the team members should have
  • Discover how to keep your team members up to speed on the latest threats – from methods of training to threat intelligence sources to how to plan and rehearse incident response programs before an intrusion occurs.
  • Understand some of the critical “people and process” elements of incident response, and how to maximize the capabilities of your cyber incident response team.
