Few companies have serious plans for how they will respond to the impact of an actual cyber breach – and even fewer stress-test those plans. Such exercises force real-time situation analysis and decision-making in much the same way that a fire drill does, while recognizing that cyber incidents are infinitely more complicated.

This workshop shows Business Continuity Planners, Crisis Managers, and their IT counterparts how to stage a cyber breach exercise that will test preparedness, surface “hidden” circumstances, and sharpen the responsiveness of everyone from top executives to front-line business managers and technologists.

Attend this session and learn how to go about developing a realistic cyber exercise that will challenge the Incident (Crisis) Management Team, the technology staff, and the business units. Leave this workshop having thought out some key aspects of a cyber tabletop exercise, feeling better prepared to develop the exercise (and perhaps a bit more paranoid).
