Getting Breach Preparedness RightStuart Mort of Optus on the Essentials of Breach Response Planning
Most large organizations at least pay lip service to breach preparedness. But when it comes to proper policies, planning and practice, far too many still fall short, says Stuart Mort of the Australian telecommunications firm Optus.
In an interview at the Sydney Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Mort discusses:
- The often-overlooked essentials of breach preparedness;
- Where many organizations fall short;
- Guidelines to use when engaging law enforcement prior to a breach investigation.
Mort is director of cybersecurity for Optus. He is responsible for leading discussions on security strategy and direction in order to aid customers in improving their security baseline. Prior to Optus, Mort was vice president of information security at Oracle, where he led information security across Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin American regions.
