Extended Information Security: Improving Incident Response Beyond the Security Office

Wednesday, May 15 | 9:15AM–10:15AM CT | Montreux, Second Floor Event Centre
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
To address increasing cyberrisk at IU, we created a new team within our security office, Extended Information Security (EIS), with the goal of reducing incident remediation times and better handling imminent threats. By building a collaborative relationship with security professionals outside the security office, the EIS program seeks to leverage their talents, improve communication between the enterprise and the edge, and increase security office capacity without additional cost. Join this session to learn more about this endeavor and to share your similar efforts with the community.

Outcomes: Learn how to build trust with units outside the security office * Explore how you can improve incident response capabilities leveraging existing resources * Learn how you can match central and edge capabilities using the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
