The Two-Minute Drill

September 25, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm MST


Join MHA Consulting for The Two-Minute Drill at DRJ Fall World in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, September 25, 2018.

It’s the last two minutes in the game and you’re down by a few points. It’s a high-pressure, fast-paced situation that requires that you use every second wisely. It’s critical that you have the right tactics in your playbook to enable your team to pull ahead.

In this in-depth session, we’ll apply this methodology to an incident. A IT disruption incident has occurred, and the first 24 hours are the most critical.

The two-minute drill allows you to focus your activities to maximize your time and resources, and it must be based firmly in your strategies and requirements. You’ve gathered a lot of information in your planning, but all that data is not really power if it’s not organized to meet your needs on the field.

This session will tackle the who, what, when, where, why and how to execute your playbook in the first 24 hours. We’ll discuss incorporating the use of resources such as the “Checklist Manifesto” to help build executable checklists, and other resources like FS-ISAC to identify, respond to, and mitigate cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities.

We’ll go beyond talking about it to giving participants an opportunity to create their own two-minute drill. Participants are encouraged (though not required) to bring their existing plan(s) to use to create a two-minute drill of their own under the guidance of our presenter.
