Session Topics

“My focus will be on the subsections of Incident Response Plans that detail what to do if there is an attack in your supply chain.”

– Michael McAndrews

The questions Michael will address will be related to the preparation for a security incident based on his experience with companies that have fallen short in their ability to respond. His focus will be on the subsections of Incident Response Plans that detail what to do if there is an attack in your supply chain. Typical discussion topics include:
  • How do you respond when there is no cooperation from the vendor or partner?
  • How do you verify the authenticity of the data?
  • How how do you protect your brand?
As in all incident response cases, the key is speed and visibility.

If you are in Washington, DC, for the conference, be sure to stop by the session on Thursday or reach out to Michael on LinkedIn if you want to connect in person.
