National Cyber Crisis – Live Exercise Scenario
A sophisticated nation state-sponsored cyber attack is in progress against our country. Multiple critical infrastructure industries are impacted and things are about to get much worse. How will government and industry work together to face the challenge? Join as a full participant in the first-ever live cyber exercise held at RSA conference, to work through the policy responses and actions.
You will play a representative on one of the following 8 teams consisting of 5 people each: Financial Services Sector, Oil & Gas Sector, Cybersecurity Sector, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Treasury Department, and European Governments/Industry. All teams will be presented with a realistic cyber crisis scenario and will have to debate and develop policy proposals and responses to be presented to the President of the United States (played by a well known national security policy expert), who will then decide on a course of action to implement out of all the proposed options. Participation requires deep knowledge of issues, concerns and jurisdictions, as well as preferably real-world experience in one of the industry sectors or government agencies represented by each team.
Session Pre-Work: Lab participants will receive a detailed email with instructions and pre-work in late March. They will be required to respond within a week in order to achieve group placement and review all of the material prior to the Lab to prepare.
