How Prairie Dogs Improve Incident Response

Presented by

Jim Hansen, COO, PhishMe

About this talk

No matter how quickly you’re detecting and responding to breaches, it’s still not fast enough for your customers’ and clients’ peace of mind. Even companies with the best solution in place are only doing half the job. The other half? Training your people. The average time to find and respond to a breach? 147 days. (That’s not a typo.) So, how do you get your organization better – and faster? And how do you train and empower your employees to do better than 147 days? In this presentation, we will explore how to harness the common detection techniques used by prairie dogs (yes, prairie dogs) and lessons we can learn from them in the domain of cyber security. HINT? It’s called Collective Security. Prairie dog calls contain specific information as to what the predator is, how big it is and how fast it is approaching. - Slobodchikoff, C. N. (2002), Cognition and Communication in Prairie Dogs
