IT Summit - Fall
Monday-Tuesday, October 11-12, 2021
SynerComm's 18th Annual IT Conference, in Brookfield, WI
Presentation: Battleplans: How to prepare for your next cyberattack
Monday • 4:00PM - 4:40PM
• Room: Connect C
Successful cyberattacks happen. What doesn't always happen, is the preparation for those attacks. The faster any organization detects and responds to incidents or data breaches, the less will be felt in terms of lost data, lost confidence, and lost revenue. While planning doesn't guarantee victory, it certainly increases the odds. How can you increase the effectiveness and relevancy of your plans? By brining realism and detail to your plans with tabletop exercises and playbooks.
This discussion will cover improving your tabletop exercises by adding actual recovery tasks to the exercise and including executive level steps within the scenario. Examples from SynerComm's recent exercises will be explored, offering attendees an insight into scenarios that have been used, simulated attack steps that have been leveraged, and the resulting improvements to incident response plans. Playbooks are a major part of the improvements. The session will go into the importance of developing playbooks for specific incident types, and show how the tabletop exercise should be leveraged in creating a playbook.
