Title:”Is Your Hair on Fire or are you just happy to see me?”
Subtitle: Understanding Crisis and IR Team Management
Abstract: Information Security professionals and IR tool vendors talk a lot about the detection, monitoring and response capabilities of products, but seldom talk about what makes the best mix of people to ensure your response team works. Understanding people and the psychology of how human beings react in a crisis informs our ability to build effective response capabilities within our organizations. This presentation covers the softer skills of hiring the right team, why the best team might not always be the right team and how understanding instinctual human reactions to crisis can better help you prepare for that eventual day when everything goes wrong and you’re team is left holding the baton to investigate and fend off the invaders.
Speaker Bio: Shawn Sines is a seasoned information security professional who in his career has held positions loading high explosives on attack aircraft, as a rentable mercenary building information security incident response programs, communicating sometimes bad news during a crisis and otherwise serving as that technical translation layer to technical and executive leadership. He has worked for THE large higher-education institution in Columbus, OH, spent time in the journalistic trenches at Central Ohio’s greatest surviving newspaper and now works at a global consumer products company in a senior security role.
