The advent of successful Cyber Crimes, and attacks against applications, systems, and infrastructures has driven the corporate mood to consider the scenario of what to do ‘when’, rather than ‘if’ they are subject to a cyber-attack, or compromise – a mood which in turn has driven their increased focus upon CSIRT, First Responder Capabilities, and the application of Digital Forensics.
