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 in much the same way that a fire drill does, but 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 unconsidered circumstances, and sharpen the responsiveness of everyone from top executives to line 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 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.

- How to challenge everyone, not just the “techies.”
