A stark reality of today’s world is that businesses must constantly defend against relentless 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 even fewer stress-test those plans. Such exercises force real-time situation analysis and decision-making while recognizing that cyber incidents are infinitely more complicated than other events.
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.
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.
Key learning points:
- The seven essentials to designing a cyber exercise
- How to challenge everyone, not just the “techies”
- Focus on business impact, reputation and brand management
