Even Tigher

I am thrilled to announce the release of my new book – Cyber Breach: What if your defenses fail? Designing an exercise to map a ready strategy on Amazon and available on the EMSS website.

Businesses and organizations defend against unending attempts to steal their computer data or damage their systems. Few, however, have serious plans for how they will respond to the impact of an actual breach. And few stress test those plans.  Such “exercises” force real-time decision-making and actions. Cyber incidents are infinitely more complicated than most emergencies and require special care in both the design and facilitation.

This book shows Business Continuity Planners, Crisis Managers and their IT counterparts how to stage a cyber incident exercise that will test preparedness, surface unconsidered circumstances, and sharpen the responsiveness of everyone from top executives to line technologists.

It focuses on Advanced Tabletop, Functional, and Full-scale exercises.  And it covers everything from broad strategies to minute-to-minute decision-making.  It also provides very specific, step-by-step instructions – starting from the earliest planning to after-action reports.

I am speaking at DRJ SpringWorld March 12 – 16. After my general session speech on March 15, I will be signing books and have copies available for sale.  Please come by and say hi!
