Oct 12 Webinar - Tales from the Digital Frontlines: Common Pitfalls that Cyber Responders Encounter When Arriving at the Scene – And How Businesses Can Get Ahead of Them


Cyberattacks are increasing while the industry talent shortage persists. Many professional Incident Response teams are forced to respond to multiple battles in tandem, while many internal business teams lack the necessary resources to mitigate and recover from cyberattacks in the first place. Amid this uneven battlefield, it's essential for businesses to effectively prepare for cyber crises and develop and test incident response plans and playbooks that can help them save time and money.

But what do those at the frontlines of responding to cybersecurity incidents have to say about the average state of preparedness they encounter when "arriving at the scene" of a cyber attack? Are businesses as ready as they think they are for the battle?

IBM Security X-Force Incident Responders have responded to and remediated  thousands of cyberattacks around the world, giving them an inside look at the most common gaps and mistakes that businesses make when establishing incident response plans and playbooks, often complicating the response process and impeding a speedy recovery.

Join this webinar to hear first-hand from X-Force Incident Responders what can make or break cyber incident response and recovery efforts, based on common pitfalls they've encountered during their engagements. Learn about steps security leaders can take to better prepare their environment for a cyber crisis and help alleviate some of the extreme pressure bestowed on cyber incident responders today.
