Mike Denning, Ed Powers: Incident Response Plans Key in Enterprise Cybersecurity Mgmt

cybersecurityMike Denning, vice president of global security at Verizon‘s enterprise solutions unit, and Ed Powers, national managing principal of Deloitte‘s cyber risk services practice, have said organizations need to consider technical and business factors when they plan for response to security incidents.

Denning observed that privileged users have become an attractive target for hackers who want to access financial or personally identifiable information at companies, according to a Deloitte Insights piece published Monday on the Wall Street Journal.

Powers added enterprises should practice vigilance because highly targeted attacks can be hard to identify and recognize.

“The life cycle of the response begins long before the incident—in the planning, processes and IT infrastructure you put into place,” he added.

He also believes that executive management teams and boards of directors should participate in their organizations’ cybersecurity efforts.

It is also important that organizations share threat intelligence with each other and use an automatic platform to exchange that kind of data, according to Denning.
