Improving incident response using packet captures
As a security operations professional, you and your team are responsible for protecting your organization; recognizing valuable data assets, assessing security gaps, and performing Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR). When an attack happens, the packet data that flows across the network is critical to the incident response life cycle. Most security analysis tools provide just parts of the information that packet data contains, but having full access to complete packet capture information can drastically improve and accelerate incident response.
In our CloudShark article, learn the role packet captures play in this life cycle - before, during, and after an attack happens - and four tips to use them better, greatly improving the success of your security operations.
