Responding to a Breach

With the world’s growing reliance on connected and complex information systems, cyber incidents will continue and may become more common. This interactive, immersive course takes you inside a cybersecurity breach scenario and helps you design your own cybersecurity incident response plan. You will be able to apply a framework and phased approach to various types of cyber incidents and have a chance to experience and think through how different roles (CEO, CISO, COO, etc.) might be involved, how each role might react, and what priorities each of those roles would be weighing during a cyber incident.
