Responding to High-impact Vulnerabilities: Are You Prepared?

In information security, it’s often said, “It’s not a matter of if, but when” an organization will be hit by a breach—it's an accepted fact that preventative controls will eventually fail to keep attackers out. And now, with high-impact vulnerabilities like Heartbleed and Shellshock being discovered with some regularity, the likelihood of a serious breach is greater than ever.

In this paper, we highlight how the tactics and strategies to respond to high-impact vulnerabilities differ from those used in other security events, outline the steps you can take to prepare for these vulnerabilities before they hit, and provide insight into incident response strategies.
