Cybersecurity incidents have evolved considerably since the TJX and Heartland breaches of 2007-08. And so has incident response, says former prosecutor Kim Peretti, now a partner at the law firm Alston & Bird. She defines incident response 2.0.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's Washington Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Peretti discusses:

  • How cyber incidents have evolved and put new demands on organizations;
  • The fundamentals of incident response 2.0;
  • Vulnerabilities in current incident response strategies.

Peretti is a partner in the Alston & Bird LLP law firm's white collar crime group and co-chair of its security incident management and response team. Previously, she was director of PricewaterhouseCoopers' cyber forensic service practice and a former senior litigator for the Department of Justice's Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section. While at the Department of Justice, Peretti led several benchmark cybercrime investigations and prosecutions, including the prosecution of the TJX hacker Albert Gonzalez, currently serving 20 years in prison for his role in the largest hacking and identity theft case ever prosecuted by the department.
