Chad Calease presents at Circle City Con in Indianapolis, on why it's time to shift our focus beyond the concepts of compliance, defense, governance, and prevention, to more emphasis on strategic response to incidents. This talk offers real stories of failure and practical, quick-win lessons on how to be prepared to respond swiftly, accurately, and confidently when incidents occur. Because they will occur. Doing a few, important things well means opening our hearts and minds to a new way of thinking and learning about each other and what it means to be prepared for a crisis.
