Just a few years ago, a cybersecurity 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, Apple, and Chase 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 managing this type of incident is to conduct a cybersecurity exercise. Attend this session and learn how to go about developing a realistic cybersecurity exercise that will challenge the Incident (Crisis) Management Team, the technology staff, and the business units. Leave this workshop with a draft of a cybersecurity tabletop exercise under your arm, feeling better prepared (and perhaps a bit more paranoid).
- What do you need to consider when designing a cybersecurity exercise?
- Who should be involved in the planning?
- What should be in your exercise plan?
- How can you challenge everyone, not just the “techies”?
