Building & Conducting a Cyber Exercise

January 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MST


Have you ever considered conducting a cyber exercise? A cyber exercise can be quite different from the usual disaster recovery exercise and there are some things you should consider when undertaking such an endeavor. Do you hold regular disaster recovery exercises to heighten team sophistication and maturity? Performing a cyber exercise, especially leveraging known weaknesses and gaps, should provide appropriate stress-inducing behavior rather than a game mentality. Exercises are about simulating a real event and identifying weaknesses and gaps in your technical and management capability.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • What questions you should ask to determine if you need to conduct a cyber exercise
  • Who should be involved in the exercise
  • What is the appropriate mix of actual recovery vs. tabletop
  • How to plan – but not over plan – the exercise
  • How to determine the appropriate scope for the exercise
  • How to manage the exercise
  • What you should do with the results
