Just a few years ago, a cyber security event, information security incident, or data breach seemed like a “one off,” something a bit more unusual. Fast-forward to today and it seems like these incidents have turned into “a breach-a-day.” Target, Home Depot, Anthem, Sony, and OPM are just a few of the recent big-name data breaches. Alas, it appears this is unlikely to abate any time soon.
One of the ways you can prepare and advance the thinking on how to manage this type of incident is to conduct a cyber exercise. 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 with a draft of a cyber tabletop exercise under your arm, feeling better prepared (and perhaps a bit more paranoid).
- What you need to consider when designing a cyber exercise.
- Who you should involve in the planning.
- What you should include in your exercise plan.
- How to challenge everyone, not just the “techies.”
