Columbus, OH—Computer science expert Matthew Curtin presents a data breach incident response case study for the Central Ohio Information Systems Security Association (COISSA) at J. Liu Restaurant in Worthington on October 17, 2012 at 7:45A.M. 

The case study examines how a $3 billion organization found a domain administrator account that appeared to be connected with a key $300 million project. When the leadership of that project did not know about the account, the organization's incident response team took action. In this case study Curtin considers how the organization used its internal and external resources to manage a response, analyzing log data, managing the spread of the backdoor with anti-malware tools, and analyzing dozens of machines forensically to find the person responsible for the privilege escalation.
