Beyond Table Top: Role-Playing Drills in Incident Response Training
Interhack founder Matt will join with Keith Fricke of the Cleveland Clinic Health System to conduct incident response drills at the Ohio Information Security Conference 2007 (OISC '07), presented by the Greater Dayton IT Alliance on March 14, 2007.
Role-playing drills have become popular in organizations seeking to train staff for the ways they engage workers that plain classroom lectures do not. But organizations endeavoring to bring greater realism and value to their training should consider taking it to the next level.
Curtin and Fricke will demonstrate how to use live drills to help manage information security breaches and how to test the effectiveness of response plans. Critical issues to be covered include: resources necessary to develop a successful drill; the objectives of live drills; how to identify the important take-aways for staff; and how to staff who might be called upon to respond to real-world security incidents to apply their newfound knowledge.
