ATLANTA, June 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, will join The SANS Institute to deliver a complimentary webinar on effective cyber security incident response on Wednesday, June 11 at 1:00 p.m. U.S. Eastern time. Presented by Lancope's director of security research, Tom Cross, and security researcher, Brandon Tansey, the webinar will discuss key components for building a computer security incident response team (CSIRT) that can continuously and relentlessly hunt for and thwart advanced attackers.
The recent onslaught of high-profile data breaches highlights a dire need for improved incident response. However, in a recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, half of all respondents said that less than 10 percent of their security budgets were used for incident response activities, and most said their incident response budgets had not increased in the past couple of years. The webinar will discuss why now is the time to strengthen incident response efforts, and exactly how organizations should go about building strong security teams, processes and technology infrastructures to more confidently combat today's sophisticated adversaries.
"The term incident response doesn't fully capture what is happening today," said Cross. "Organizations need to adopt a 'continuous response' footing, in which the hunt for compromises becomes a business process that they engage in every day. Attackers are able to evade preventative security measures that most organizations have in place, so if you're not aware of a compromise at the moment, you have to ask yourself if that really means that you aren't compromised, or if it just means that you lack sufficient insight into what is happening in your network."
Join Lancope and SANS to learn:
- What your CSIRT should look like
- Which processes, policies and best practices can be implemented to maximize its success
- The tools required for your CSIRT to collect, analyze and act on valuable security data already available on your network
Lancope's StealthWatch® System collects and analyzes NetFlow and other types of flow data from existing infrastructure to provide in-depth visibility into network activity and potential attacks. This intelligence can be leveraged both historically and in real time to enable continuous response and significantly bolster network forensics capabilities.
