Just a few years ago, a cyber security 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.” According to IBM, there were 1.5 million monitored cyber attacks in the U.S. alone in 2013. Unfortunately, it appears this phenomenon is unlikely to stop any time soon.


One of the ways to prepare for and give advance thinking on how your company could manage this type of incident is to conduct a cyber security exercise. Join guest speaker Regina Phelps on Tuesday, August 18th at 1:00 PM EDT (17:00 GMT) for Training Exercises: Continuity Planning and Mitigating the Impact of Cyber Attacks and Breaches and learn how to go about developing a realistic cyber security exercise that will challenge the Incident (Crisis) Management Team, the technology staff, and the business units.


This webinar will focus on designing an exercise that emphasizes the impact of such a breach. Topics Covered:

  • What do you need to consider when designing a cybersecurity exercise?
  • Who should be involved in the planning?
  • How do you focus on the impacts?
  • How can you challenge everyone, not just the “techies”?
  • What are the possible communication challenges and solutions?
