This year at Black Hat 2017, NTT Security is focusing on incident response readiness: one lucky show participant will win a thorough security gap assessment from the NTT Security Incident Response team valued at approximately $15,000 based on 40 hours of professional services.
Robust response plans are key to minimizing damage and liability
“The recent WannaCry and Petya ransomware attacks on global infrastructure highlight the importance of having a robust incident response program in place before a cyber incident occurs,” said Susan Carter, Senior Manager Threat intelligence and Incident Response Services at NTT Security.
“The only way to ensure such a program is successful it to have someone from the executive staff to champion the effort and guarantee investment in tools, people and time for training. Black Hat is the perfect environment to stimulate further discussion on this critical need, and to discuss preventive measures and response planning so organizations can be better protected.”
NTT Security’s extensive portfolio of IT security services fall into three categories: Strategic Consulting, Managed Security and Technical Consulting. Whether applied independently or in combination, NTT Security provides the foundation for a purpose- built MSS platform encompassing advanced analytics and globally implemented threat intelligence supported by experienced IT security experts.
The company has 10 SOCs, seven R&D centers, over 1,500 security experts and handles hundreds of thousands of security incidents annually across six continents.
