The aim of the cyber breach response course is to provide drills, table-top exercises and rehearsals for the scenarios that you may face.
Your organisational structure can be unique and it is critical that we consider this when constructing a cyber breach playbook. Our approach is to prepare delegates for their role in their organisation’s breach plans. Differing structures can have an impact on operations and decision-making during a breach.
This course is a blend of lecture with practical exercises where we will share relevant insights and discuss the implications in your context. We use case studies based on real examples and we will draw on the wisdom in the room. You will participate in an interactive simulation of a real cyber breach that will test your responses.
