‘Cyber attacks that get through’

Anjola Adeniyi & Kevin Duffey

Cyber Crisis – Executive Simulation

As a senior executive, you confront the challenge of our generation: cyber attacks that get through.

Reputations are ruined, revenues are compromised and operations are overwhelmed at organisations like yours, when executives are unprepared for the commercial consequences of a breach.

This Executive Simulation helps participants engage at Board level, to lead business recovery after defences have failed. It covers PR, Customer Service, Finance, Human Resources, Investor Relations, and other functions that must respond effectively in a cyber crisis.

The simulation is based on learnings from over 100 major data breaches. It covers:

  • Why shock and ambiguity are common responses in the Boardroom
  • Where command & control systems are stressed after a major breach
  • Who expects what, among regulators, customers, partners and police
  • How the exponential growth in cyber attacks puts your job on the line
  • What to do today, to protect yourself from cyber attacks of tomorrow

Participants will learn:

  • The 8 instinctive errors that exacerbate cyber incidents
  •  The 4 gaps that stop companies responding effectively
  • The 3 lies that executives tell themselves during a breach

Who should attend?
Board Directors, C-Level Directors, Chief Risk Officers, Privacy Directors, Marketing Directors, Security Directors, HR Directors and Leadership Development Specialists.

The simulation will be run by:
