White Paper: A Playbook for Responding to Phishing Attacks

How long before one of your users clicks a phishing link? According to the Verizon DBIR, it’s only 1 minute 40 seconds. In this playbook, we detail how machine learning, outsourced response service providers, and automated case workflows can accelerate threat resolution and close the “window of vulnerability”. Find out why SOC teams are being pinched by increasingly sophisticated attacks and anxious employees -- often in response to well-intentioned security awareness training. SOC teams are chronically understaffed, and investigating false positive threats sabotages their strategic objectives. Explore best practices to dealing with phishing attacks, and outline 6 steps that should be included in any incident response playbook.
