Session V: “Systematic Incident Management”
Session description: When a security incident occurs, telcos explore root causes of it, implement mitigation measures and come up with prevention strategies for the future. How exactly does this process look like in your organisation? Could you share playbooks developed for specific incidents? When it comes to, e.g., ransomware against your telco.
