A recap and recording of this event is available here.

For companies, responding to security breaches increasingly requires multiple kinds of expertise, from product and engineering to legal and communications. Companies that get their responses right increase their resilience and can strengthen trust with customers. Yet too often, incident response occurs in silos, with infosec teams, corporate counsel, and external relations out of sync on decisions ranging from attribution to risk communications.

Join our expert panel for a conversation that gets under the hood on breaches and how organizations respond to them, with a focus on how the “state of the art” for incident response is evolving, and what breach notification regulations on the horizon will mean for organizations.
