Proactive First Response

2 Day Course

Rapid incident response minimizes loss and destruction, mitigates exploited weaknesses, restores IT services, and reduces the risk of future cyber security incidents.

However, a lack of resource, technology, or recognition of the type and magnitude of the problem leaves organizations under-prepared  when the worst happens. 

When the reality is that you're not expertly equipped, the role of a first responder is essential -- and one many individuals in your IT team can step into.
