Companies that don’t know how to identify and handle security incidents suffer the most.
Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Seccuris Inc., a leading cybersecurity consulting and managed services firm, will be hosting a webinar on Oct. 28, 2014 entitled “Why Security Incidents are Different from IT Incidents.” Presented by Ivo Wiens, Manager of Security Engineering for Seccuris, the webinar will focus on how organizations and their customers can avoid a loss of critical information, stolen revenue, and even legal actions by knowing how to recognize security incidents when they occur and how to respond to them quickly.
“Data breaches spiked to record levels last year and continue to grow,” explained Ivo Wiens. “Security events do indeed occur, and the companies that don’t know how to identify and handle them suffer the most; not just the direct costs of the event, but also trustworthiness and reputability of their brand.”
According to Mr. Wiens, one of the key factors of an effective response plan is knowing the difference between a security incident and a standard IT incident. In the webinar, he will discuss how to recognize a security incident, evaluate the associated risks, and determine the most effective approach before, during, and after an attack.
During the presentation, attendees will learn:
- What makes security incidents more dangerous than IT incidents.
- The most effective way to detect security incidents.
- Why security incident response shouldn’t follow the same methodology as IT incidents. • How to best integrate the outcome of an incident response into change control processes.
