Conference Title: SANS Data Breach Summit 2016
Where: Chicago, Illinois, United States
For every organization, data breach is a major risk. It’s not a matter of whether your organization will be breached; it’s when, and – most importantly – how bad the damage will be. You likely have a response plan in place. But your response in the first hours after initially discovering the “incident,” which is later confirmed to be a “breach,” will be crucial to mitigating financial and reputation damage. Is your response plan battle tested?
At the Summit, you and your team will participate in advanced exercises and in-depth discussions around data breach scenarios. The Summit brings together CISOs, risk managers, communication execs, insurers, attorneys, and security professionals to discover best practices for breach preparation and response.
Summit Discussion Topics:
Lessons from real data breach cases
The executive management decision-making process
Gathering and assessing evidence of incidents and breaches
Data breach law and confidentiality
Implications and obligations of involving the FBI or other law enforcement
Determining the significance of a security incident
Effectively partnering with your cyber insurer
You’ll have the unique opportunity to participate in hypothetical data breach scenarios where you discover the worst has happened: your organization has been breached and sensitive data is at risk. This is your chance to put your response plan to the test!
How do you respond?
Whom must you notify, and when?
What steps must you take to comply with laws and industry standards?
How do you communicate to your many stakeholders – customers, partners, employees, those whose PII may have been affected?
What is the role of your cyber insurer?
What are the roles of in-house counsel and outside counsel?
