Reducing the Impact of a Breach Through Early Detection (Part 2) - Incident Response vs Incident Readiness

This two-part series is focused on reducing the impact of a breach through early detection. In part one we looked at the change in mindset from purely preventative measures, to implementing effective detection methods within your environment; and the positive impact that this could have.  In this article we will look at bridging the gap between the initial point of intrusion and instigation of an effective incident response plan.
