Incident Response is a series of investigative and remedial steps that a company takes in the event of a breach or other security incident. These restoration efforts can include backtracking through log data, isolating affected machines, and even negotiating with cyberterrorists!
Cybersecurity breaches are becoming more and more prevalent. In fact, it’s been estimated that there were almost 5 billion records breached in 2018. Many organizations spend thousands of dollars on security breach prevention tools, but won’t take the time to create a formal process of identifying, responding to, and communicating an incident.
U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent Jeffrey Huber, who runs point on cybersecurity for the state of Iowa, was on hand at a recent ProCircular roundtable to talk about the FBI’s Cyber Division and its role in addressing cybercrime.
More than 200 IT and technology leaders from hospitals, schools, and businesses in eastern Iowa came together last month at the Business Technology Conference in Coralville, Iowa – hosted by systems integration firm CEC (Communications Engineering Company) – to learn about new technology and how it can improve processes, profit, and efficiency.
Many types of technology were showcased at the event, but there were plenty of conversations about cybersecurity.
