Security practitioners find themselves thinking a lot these days about incident response. A new SANS survey project, an outgrowth of the many recent data breaches and attacks plaguing enterprises large and small, asks IT professionals about the steps they take immediately following a breach discovery and how successful those steps really are.

Part 1 of this incident response webcast August 14 will highlight the results of the survey and talk about where we are as an industry in a typical six-step IR process.

Part 2, Friday, August 15, 1:00 p.m., will look at growing and maturing an IR capability.

The webcasts will also provide insight into incident response plans, attack histories, where organizations should focus their response efforts, and how to put all of the pieces together.

We will share key findings concerning respondents incident response wish lists and actionable takeaways from both respondents and SANS experts with deep field expertise in IR.

Attendees to both Parts 1 and 2 will have a chance to win a $50 Starbucks card.
