London, United Kingdom, 2011/11/17 - Trustwave, a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions, announced that a Trustwave cyber security expert will speak at the IRISSCERT Cyber Crime Conference in Dublin, Ireland, 23 November - Trustwave.com.
The presentation will be delivered by a member of Trustwave SpiderLabs, the team of ethical hackers responsible for application security, incident response and forensics, penetration testing and security research.
Ryan Jones, managing consultant, Incident Response for Trustwave SpiderLabs EMEA, will present Incident Readiness - Give Your Investigators a Fighting Chance, which will demonstrate the benefits of engaging in incident readiness to prepare a business environment should an attack, and an ensuing investigation, occur.
Incident readiness helps any business better prepare for a potential data breach or ethical hack. By determining ahead of time the specific data that should be made available in the event of a breach, forensic investigators can draw more accurate conclusions on missing information, how the breach was executed and the security implications.
Jones will review a Web application attack against two systems: one with default audit logging settings versus another that has undergone a forensic readiness engagement. Acting as an incident response specialist, Jones will compare the evidence in both attack scenarios and the contrasting resulting final reports, demonstrating how accurate evidence leads to a far better understanding of the compromise. With the ability to draw stronger conclusions about the attack, entities are able to react in a swift, targeted and measured way, reducing the impact of attacks, the cost to respond and any negative brand repercussions.
"Companies that consider incident readiness put their investigators in a much stronger position and can expect considerably more accurate conclusions from a forensic investigation," said John Yeo, director of SpiderLabs, EMEA. "Data breaches can tarnish an organisation's reputation and consumer trust; engaging in incident readiness can help minimise the impact and provide the organisation a firmer response plan."
