The last two years have provided significant learning opportunities in incident response, disaster recovery and business continuity. This session will analyze four case studies of cybersecurity breaches or business continuity situations from the last 18 months that had significant impact on businesses.
We will explore lessons learned as a result of (1) software supply chain situations (eg. the SolarWinds Orion software supply chain situation); (2) examples of Ranswomware attacks that occurred throughout 2021 and 2022; (3) imbedded software issues (eg. the Log4J Java software vulnerabilities); and (4) the COVID pandemic impact on IT/cyber operations.
Attendees will gain an up to date understanding of the current threat landscape through the analysis of the case studies and examples from our penetration testing, incident response, and forensic practice. Through examination of the case studies we will explore strategies to mitigate the risks related to these types of situations and attacks, and discuss the elements and structure of Incident Response plans.
