Topic Synopsis: In the olden days, incident Response meant having the entire security team in a room struggling with tools and trying to respond to an external notification. Nowadays, while most folks have a multi-tiered SOC, Devon took a different approach by keeping IR as a more efficient whole-team function. Technology helps make things better and more efficient. A process is very important in driving consistency and metrics help tell our story. However, our main focus continues to be efficient incident response taking to account both the financial costs as well as the organizational burden of our activities.
