After my 112 Days of Summer article, I of course wanted to check on how many additional breaches were REPORTED and how many records were EXPOSED. I knew it would be bad, like not flossing your teeth regularly and showing up at the dentist knowing what he would say. So I went to the Identify Theft Resource website and clicked on the Summary of 2015 Reported Breaches and there was that damn drill, staring me in the face. I knew the pain would be bad but OUCH!!!
After reviewing the SANS IR 2014 Survey, one thing was clearly absent and that is TEAM. I find that the most effective IR teams train as a team not as individuals and then expect to work as a team. I do not suspect that the Pittsburgh Steelers train individually and then come together on game day and expect to win. There is a robust and comprehensive solution to accomplish this, if you want to learn how to have your IR Team train and RESPOND as a team, contact me.
