Managing and Preparing for Cyber Incidents - 7th-8th October - London


Responding to Cyber Incidents - Briefing

Course Overview

The briefing is aimed at senior managers who would be called upon to manage their organisation's response to a cyber incident at strategic or crisis management level. The aim of the briefing is for senior managers to understand the threat to their organisation, what preparation and decision making they can carry out in advance of an incident and how responding to a cyber incident is different to managing more conventional incidents.

The briefing can be 1-3 hours.

The briefing will be tailored to the needs, level of experience, threat and incident management maturity of the organisation. To achieve this, before each briefing the tutor will either visit or have a series of telephone calls to ensure that the training is tailored to the organisations requirements.

Sessions can vary from teaching to interactive sessions, responding to and making decisions on a series of short scenarios.
