Sleeping better in Seattle: Incident response put to the test
This presentation by Kirk Bailey, CISO, City of Seattle, and Ernie Hayden, CISO, Port of Seattle, was given at Information Security Decisions Spring 2005.
Ever try drafting a security response policy or disaster recovery
plan in a vacuum, without the benefit of knowing the affect of your actions? Enterprise security managers do this all the time, often guessing at how their plans will affect their enterprise operations and their interconnected, interdependent partners. Senior security managers in the Seattle/Puget Sound Region have conducted several exercises in which they play out the impact of cyberattacks and how to best respond to them. Here's your chance to get an inside look at real-world "worst case" scenarios and how you can put these valuable lessons learned to work in your own enterprise.
Led by guest experts Kirk Bailey, CISO, City of Seattle, and Ernie Hayden, CISO, Port of Seattle, you understand just how these exercises have given participating security professionals deep insight into the consequences of attacks on their infrastructures and the impact of their responses. What they've discovered within such tabletop exercises are the exponential benefits and new tools that can help you best craft the most effective incident response and disaster recovery plans.
