Visa on How to Detect a Security Breach

Visa just released a very interesting slide deck entitled Identifying and Detecting Security Breaches. You can see it by clicking here. The presentation illustrates some of the signs of a potential incident among other things.

The presentation makes interesting reading, and you may want to read it along side your own incident response plan.

I particularly like the emphasis on logs and logging. Having a good logging system is critical to detecting security breaches, and Visa emphasizes this point. They also discuss the basics of incident response management (which is why you may want your own plan nearby).

I suggest you download the material, and while your at it, surf over to Visa's website and download their excellent What to Do If Compromised document. I always send a copy to clients before starting a new engagement.
