SANS INCIDENT RESPONSE MANAGEMENT COURSE OCT 14-15, 2011
DR. GENE SCHULTZ WILL TEACH A NEW SANS INCIDENT RESPONSE MANAGEMENT COURSE OCT. 14-15 IN BALTIMORE
Dr. Gene Schultz, Emagined Security’s Chief Technology Officer, will be teaching a new SANS course, Incident Response Management, October 14 – 15 in Baltimore, California. If you are an incident response or information security manager or are involved in highly related functions such as business continuity or disaster recovery management or IT audit, there is a good chance that this course is for you! Its course content is as follows:
The success of incident response functions depends far more on how they are managed than on all the technical skills that can be brought into play. This presentation describes what an incident response manager needs to know and do to have a successful incident response effort. The following issues and topics are covered: 1. up-front planning and preparation, 2. developing an effective incident response policy and plan, 3. assigning roles and responsibilities, 4. creating and using an incident response methodology, 5. working with senior management and various organization functions, 6. setting up and managing incident response operations, and 7. how to monitor performance. One of the recurring themes is that incident response managers must establish a solid foundation upon which to build an incident response effort. Another is that incident response managers must ensure that incident response functions do not turn into silos–active cooperation and escalation of critical incident-related information to entities such as senior management, critical stakeholders, and functions such as HR and public relations is essential to an incident response effort’s success. Additionally, this course has at least one exercise in every module to help attendees build real-world skills and knowledge.
Because this will be the first time this course is taught, SANS is reducing the course fee by 50 percent. Attendance will be limited, so signing up soon is a good idea. More information about the course, the venue, and how to register can be found at:
