Beneficial for the cyber security project I'm working on

Trainers were very knowledgeable and great at answering questions. Simulation was very useful and listening to the discussion between others was beneficial for the cyber security project I’m working on.

Cyber Breach course attendee

I found the cross-organisational exercising was really valuable

Most of the day 1 material was already familiar to me (not a criticism), but I found the cross-organisational exercising was really valuable.

Cyber Breach course attendee

Everyone's views were taken on board

The exercise on day two highlighted something that could happen and encouraged us to share how we would respond if situation like this arose within our organisation. Everyone’s views were taken on board and that made everyone feel part of the process.
