As data breaches gain public attention, vulnerability disclosure becomes an increasingly crucial part of the incident response process.
Today's advanced threats require a comprehensive incident response plan to minimize damage and recover normal operations as quickly as possible in the wake of a data breach.
Building the right incident response team means looping in people outside of the IT and security teams.
For incident response teams, resuming normal operations in the wake of a cyberattack is the name of the game. However, lack of preparation and poor communication can impede recovery efforts.
According to IBM's Christopher Scott, who spoke at The Wall Street Journal's Pro Cybersecurity Executive Forum, the road to better incident response is "a marathon, not a sprint."
Many organizations lack the cybersecurity leadership required to effectively defend their networks and proactively respond to data breaches when they do occur.
CISOs can improve their enterprise security posture by adopting cognitive technology, educating executives, conducting incident response training and fostering a culture of security in 2018.
