CIO Online: 20 Ways Your IT Team Makes You Look Like a Hero
In #10 on CIO Online’s list, CISO Demetrios ‘Laz’ Lazarikos (@iamlaz) explains how keeping the business safe must always be top-of-mind for today’s InfoSec professionals, but not at the expense of slowing down operations. Balance is key to maintaining a well-protected, fast-moving organization.
CSO Online introduces Data Dump Day - any day when attackers release stolen data online on anonymous text sharing or bulletin board sites such as Pastebin or 4chan. CISO Laz advises that, to prepare for these surprises, InfoSec teams must improve awareness of data that may be in these dumps by engaging qualified threat research teams that monitor the Internet underground for cyber-criminal activities that may heighten just before a dump occurs. And when dumps do happen, proper incident response plans, law enforcement notifications, and remediation techniques should be in place to bring the event to a speedy close and reduce the damage.
