Hacker Hour

Date: Wednesday, January 27
Time: 2:00-3:00 PM CT
Recording available.

The ability to respond quickly and effectively to a cyber incident can determine the overall financial and reputational impact on your organization. An Incident Response Playbook is designed to provide a step-by-step walk-through for the most probable and impactful cyber threats and ensure certain steps of the Incident Response Plan are followed appropriately.

 Join SBS as we walk through the seven steps to creating an Incident Response Playbook tailored to your organization.



Hacker Hour: Are You Prepared for an Incident?

Description: Recent cyberattacks have proven that the ability to assess cyber incident response readiness is becoming a core competency for all businesses. A well-executed assessment structure with a repeatable program not only allows organizations to identify and properly respond to different attacks but also dramatically increases the speed at which the business can react. The quicker a business can react, the lower the impact that event has.

Join SBS as we discuss what steps you can take today to start assessing your incident response readiness and strengthen your organization's ability to respond.
