Cyber-attacks are not as clear cut as we would like to think, and they can't be dealt with alone. It is frequently necessary to work with other parties both internal and external to resolve incidents for your organization, as well as to mitigate attacks affecting multiple parties. Cyber-attacks can also have broad ranging impacts from loss of services to data breaches; these impacts may include Denial of Service, email blocklists, privacy breaches and intellectual property theft just to name a few. In order to prevent future attacks, we need to understand why and how they happened in the first place and what resources we have available to handle them. Join us to learn about how public bodies and their "incident response teams" are handling these attacks and where you may find help.
