Response teams apply threat models to protect an organization's goals and to determine which controls are important to defend organizational interests. But defensive teams themselves are under threat: working in emergency response takes its toll on individuals. Budgets, over-commitment, urgency, and crisis all put a great deal of pressure on incident responders. This presentation will examine "threats against the goals of the SIRT itself" for managers and "blue team" practitioners: how to build, manage, and participate a defensive / incident response team under fire. Attendees will learn a practical approach for identifying and defending against the key threats against their team goals. The speaker will share examples from his own past threat modeling, such as: how to find, hire, and retain good candidates; how to maintain morale when under crisis; how to improve a struggling team; how to (re)organize to meet imminent challenges to long-term success; and more.
