Through interviews with key personnel at leading professional services firms and boutique incident response consultancies, with input from a variety of incident response professionals, SANS has gathered actionable insight into the key elements of successful incident response: effective utilization of people, processes and technology.

This webcast will address the current nature of IR operations and emerging trends from leading professional service firms and practitioners in the field. Questions to be explored include:

  • What are the keys to effective incident response practice in organizations today?
  • What are the major obstacles to detection and incident scoping encountered by IR teams?
  • How can organizations "pave the way" for faster detection and remediation?
  • What tools/technologies work for in-house and third-party service providers?
  • Where are the perceived gaps in tools/technologies?
  • What is on the horizon that will affect future incident response processes?
  • What are the key considerations for measuring, monitoring and benchmarking against the critical security controls?
