Public and private sector organizations alike are charged with protecting critical data and responding to incidents that put information security at risk. In this session, David Matthews, deputy CISO for the City of Seattle, reveals:
Data protection challenges;
Tools to meet those challenges;
How to respond to security incidents.
Hackers. Insiders. Man-made or natural disasters. These are among the forces that threaten data critical to private and public sector organizations. And they force information security leaders to constantly be vigilant in data protection and incident response.
In this webinar, David Matthews, deputy CISO for the city of Seattle, will give an inside view into the challenges he faces every day - from the benign and accidental to the intentional and potentially devastating.
Offering a unique government perspective, Matthews will discuss:
The specific data protection issues that face local governments;
Which tools, procedures, and training are used to address those issues;
How to respond when data is lost or systems are compromised.
Matthews also will offer first-hand insight on incident response procedure, as well as roles and responsibilities for information security staff.
And how does a real security incident unfold? Matthews will take you inside a real case study from his experience.
