SEM06A-Does Your Incident Response Program Make the Grade? (separate registration is required)

Monday, May 01 | 8:30AM–12:00PM | Mattie Silks, Lower Level 1
Session Type: Industry Led
Please note lunch is not included with your complimentary registration.

Do you have an incident response program in place? Has it been tested and measured? In the often decentralized campus environment, it's more important than ever before to implement tools and policies that detect and prioritize threats to quickly enable remediation and response. PII records, intellectual property, and research, coupled with the increase of BYOD, the IoT, and cloud adoption, make higher education a hot target for cybercrime. Unfortunately, now there is a rising need to have a response program that includes physical threats to campuses. During this seminar designed by Symantec for higher education decision makers, we will explore the current threats, trends, tools, services, training options, and policy implementations recommended for building a robust incident response program that's relevant to the evolving cyber and physical threat ecosystem. Join us to participate in an incident response preparedness exercise to test your IR plan and receive feedback from IR experts.

Understand the evolving threat landscape with findings from Symantec's 2017 Internet Security Threat Report and implications to educational institutions * Identify best practices, tools, and services to transform your incident response plan into a holistic program * Participate in a mock incident and test and measure the success of your IR plan
