General Session - Cyber Breach: What if your defenses fail? Designing an exercise to map a ready strategy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Every month we read about the latest, the greatest, or “the most significant cyber breach

ever.” Companies are jostling to figure out how to manage these challenging cyber security

issues – and it’s not just IT that’s scrambling. Cyber incidents affect every aspect of the

business, and cyber security has become one of the most pressing issues in business

continuity management today.

In many recent surveys, “C-ˇsuite” executives say that their number one concern is a cyber

breach or major malware incident. But how do you go about creating this type of exercise

that is, frankly, fraught with peril? Very carefully, obviously! The goal of this session is to

demonstrate the value of conducting such an exercise to improve your company’s overall

readiness. The session will describe how you can go about designing this type of exercise,

why it is different from other exercises, and how you can avoid pitfalls and career-ˇlimiting

moves this topic can lead to.

Topics Covered

• Discover how a cyber exercise is different from other exercises.

• Learn about the positive benefits of cyber exercise.

• Design an exercise that delivers on the stated goal.

• Determine the eight critical elements that make a cyber exercise work
