Topic: DIGITAL FORENSIC INCIDENT PREPAREDNESS
A proactive approach to Digital Forensic Incident Response (DFIR) matters can save not only time and valuable resources but overall response costs as well. Having a DFIR plan as well as conducting testing and training around the plan will ensure an efficient and effective response. Being prepared to address an incident when it occurs is the first step in overcoming and surviving the incident.
