6118 - Storyboarding Incident Response Methodology: Speed, Synergy and Accuracy

Wednesday, September 27
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

It's Friday night—"IR Night"— and you get the call. After some initial information is collected, inevitably the next first step is to spin up an IR bridge. Rapidly, the various teams join: incident managers, server and network teams, application analysts and the incident response lead. More than 90 percent of IR teams will convene on a conference line - and that method negatively constrains communication and synergy. Leveraging visual techniques in training is proven to increase speed of understanding and depth of retention by an additional 80 percent. So why don't IR teams everywhere do this?

In this presentation, attendees will learn why they should – for every IR event. Attendees will learn about the Storyboard Incident Response Methodology. Using a simple, effective, repeatable and extremely visual methodology, participants' eyes and minds will pop with "ah-ha" moments that instantly make them converts to storyboarding. You'll be asking yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?" We'll include high-level objectives of how attendees will learn the practical application of storyboarding to effectively support all phases of the incident response process.
