“I have reviewed a number of companies for their incident response plans," he says. "Not every incident response plan is the same. A bank would have a different incident response plan compared to an online trading company. You can’t blindly replicate an incident response plan from another industry just because it proved successful there."

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Goudi also discusses why:

  • Some incident response plans are ineffective;
  • Testing and revising a plan is essential;
  • Key elements must be included.

Goudie is regional director services, APJ at CrowdStrike. He has more than two decades of experience as a programmer, security manager, network engineer, penetration tester and incident responder in companies around the world. He leads a team of experts that help respond to incidents.
