Is your team prepared to deal with a cyber-crisis?

Cybersecurity is increasingly at the centre of every business globally. Businesses are undoubtedly reliant upon digital functions for day to day activities. Alongside the many benefits emerging with this shift, also comes the cyber threat landscape which is increasingly complex and sophisticated, targeted attacks test the resilience of all businesses. 

Cyber exposure is now seen as inevitable and a cyber-breach is more considered ‘when’ it will occur rather than ‘if’. More importantly, how severe the consequences of a breach will be once it has occurred. 

It is vital that businesses are well informed about potential risks and are prepared for actions to take before, during and after an attack. The best way to assess your organisational resilience and the organisation’s capacity to deal with the crisis effectively is to undertake an incident simulation exercise.

‘‘80% of data breaches are down to human error’’

The consequences of a cybersecurity attack can be costly both to reputation and finances. Disruption of systems, downtime and lost productivity costs attributable to cyber incidents have an average cost of $5 million for a single cyber-attack. 

Are you truly aware of the risks your business may face?

What to expect on the day:
Join us at this interactive workshop where you will work in teams to undertake a cyber incident scenario activity aimed to help you experiment and identify your ability to cope with mission critical situations both from a technical and behavioural perspective.  

This will be an international trade based scenario helping you protect your business globally. You will be assisted by technical cyber security and behavioural experts who understand the best demonstrated practice and decision making milestones for data breach incidents. 

Our interactive exercises help you to:
•    Test the effectiveness and functioning of teams in case of a crisis situation
•    Assess the capacity of the team to provide appropriate situational awareness to the different stakeholders and audiences within one hour from detecting a breach
•    Strengthen and develop any current areas of weakness in team dynamics, communications and decision making
•    Enhance cyber and data protection awareness, readiness and team synergies in the event of an incident and/or crisis
•    Develop individual development plans and corporate contingency plans for addressing crisis management

After places are confirmed all participants will be sent a questionnaire to complete. The Cyber Attitudes Assessment questionnaire explores the behaviours that could expose your company from a cyber-security risk perspective (normal cost £149+vat but free to workshop delegates). Filling in the questionnaire is a prerequisite to participating in the workshop.

This simulation is based on a cyber security attack based in a neutral business setting and no technical experience is required to participate.

This interactive workshop is perfect for those looking to understand how to respond if an incident has already occurred. The workshop will allow you to adjust your individual risk profile and response plans to better protect your organisation in the future. Register now to secure your place. 

Cost: Free of Charge.
