Today, we will discuss "Global Incident Awareness". I will split this topic into two parts: First of all, if you are part of an organization with offices in multiple countries, what resources do you use to understand how to deal with incidents in various areas of the world, and are there any particular tricks you use to communicate and stay in touch? Secondly, what tools / websites do you use to stay in touch with the world around you. This includes incidents outsides of cyber space that may affect your network operations (earth quakes, political unrest ...).
As before, please use our contact page to submit your suggestions. I will update this page a couple times today as submissions are received.
Reader Liam wrote in with the following recommendations for a global organisation:
One of the first tasks that we had performed was to conduct a global skills assessment for each country in the areas of computer forensics, malware analysis, incident response, etc. This information was used to define a core group of subject matter expert contacts from each region that participate in regular mock incident exercises and training scenarios focusing on sharing best practice ideas allowing us to move away from teams working in silos where there is no effective process of data capture and sharing of best practice or the opportunity to learn from mistakes in a blame-free environment.
