Have a Plan, Practice It and Then Practice It Again
In this exclusive podcast series, “Take Back Control of Your Cybersecurity Now,” Paul Ferrillo and Christophe Veltsos share insights from their recently released book of the same name. By explaining top threats and cyber risks in plain language, Ferrillo and Veltsos not only illustrate today’s perilous landscape, but also build a convincing case for why cybersecurity must be a key business priority.
Last week on the podcast, Paul and Chris shared their thoughts on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and offered recommendations for organizations seeking to adopt the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF). In this episode they take a closer look at one of the CSF’s five continuous functions: respond.
Whereas the goal of cybersecurity was once to build enough layers and walls to keep out attackers, in more recent years companies have shifted their focus to detecting bad guys already inside their systems. The need to respond as quickly and accurately as possible has elevated the status of incident response teams and crisis management planning, which Paul and Chris describe as both critically important and too often overlooked.
Listen now to discover the many benefits of a strong incident response program. Spoiler alert: There’s more to it meeting regulatory compliance.
