Cyber Incident Response

Online: Tuesday, November 23rd, 2021 | Time: 12:00-2:30pm ET / 9:00-11:30am PT

Ensure readiness with hands-on training and scenario planning

With cyber threats continuously on the rise in the public sector, and the dire consequences that follow more consequential than ever, preparing for threats and having an established plan of action to immediately execute is crucial to limit incident costs and damages.  Further, protecting an organization’s reputation is critical to retain public confidence and trust as the digitalization of government continues.

Identifying systems and information critical to business operations, creating disaster recovery plans, continuously updating and testing your incident response plan, and improving detection capabilities are just a few of the areas of focus for government to ensure it remains secure and can respond rapidly to incidents.

Public Sector Network’s Cyber Incident Response virtual event will provide insights and strategies to ensure your early threat detection and rapid response is prepared when network security breaches occur. Join us for critical discussions to understand how to prepare and secure your network against your next external threat and cyber-attack.
