Planning for Certain High Risk Security Incidents

Time 10/11/07 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

Institutions cope with many different types of security incidents.
Some incidents, such as viruses or other malware, represent chronic
threats. Others, such as DDOS attacks, represent more acute threats.
Today we'll talk about a third category, one which is potentially
exceptionally painful, but also hopefully exceptionally rare --
incidents which can have catastrophic impacts not just on a single
institution, but on an entire region or the country as a whole.

We'll discuss two examples from this category: pandemic flu, and
electromagnetic pulse (EMP). These are serious threats which have
garnered substantial funding and ongoing attention at the federal
level, but which many schools and other private sector entities
have only begun to consider. We'll describe and explain these risks
and their potential impact on the country and your institution,
describe the unique challenges that "low probability/high pain"
events potentially represent, and talk about cost-effective steps
your institution can take to harden itself against these threats.
