Incident Response: Opportunities for Automation
Date: Tuesday, April 19 at 11am PT / 2pm ET
DevOps and Agile are commonplace practices in the enterprise today, and the advent of CI/CD pipelines has added monitoring and automation to the process, creating conduits for delivering code changes frequently and reliably.
But when it comes to incident response—the process of relaying data among systems while engaging the right people to resolve everything from data breaches to digital service interruptions—it's still mostly a bunch of people staring at a bunch of screens waiting for things to go wrong.
This Tech Talk applies some of the lessons learned from DevOps and Agile practices to the process of automating incident response in your organization.
In this Tech Talk, you'll learn:
Why you should automate your incident response processes
How to develop a "value stream map"
How to engage and track "resolvers"
How to employ "automated remediation"
How to think about incidents as "business impacting events"
