Critical Incident: Surviving my first layoff by applying BCP/DRP Principles - Tom Mead GrrCON 2017 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Critical Incident: Surviving my first layoff by applying BCP/DRP Principles
Tom Mead
GrrCON 2017

The day before my 30th birthday will be forever ingrained in my mind. It was the day my world stopped, as I experienced a random layoff of my InfoSec job of over 5 years. In this presentation I will discuss my reaction to the sudden and unexpected news, and how my experience in Information Security helped me navigate one of the most terrifying experiences in my life to date. By keeping a cool(ish) head, and applying sound Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery practices, including development of post "incident" lessons learned, I was able to navigate the "disaster", and come out ahead. I will provide key takeaways to help the audience be prepared for such an incident, while sharing many of the emotions that one experiences during a layoff. While I hope no one ever experiences such an event, it never hurts to Be Prepared.
