Now On-Demand: Cyber-Related Disaster
Increasing cyber threats to our infrastructure and other targets threaten our national security and safety. Government contractors are now required to quickly report on actual or suspected cyber incidents, to engage in the preservation of data, and to work with Government officials to mitigate such events. In this practicum, we present four professionals who have been at the table for real & simulated cyber-related events affecting national security, electrical power infrastructure, government operations, finance and transportation. Using our simulated cyber disaster exercise, we will walk you through what you need to know:
- Identifying and assessing the incident with imperfect information.
- Initial communications to potentially affected entities.
- Prioritizing continuity of operations.
- Inter-agency and cross-jurisdictional coordination.
- Debriefing, lessons learned and the importance of preparedness.
