The day

The objective of the day is to prepare your teams to deliver an exceptional recovery from a ransomware crisis.

The masterclass is built around a multi-layered scenario, spanning both cyber and physical realms.

You are a senior executive in charge of handling the response.  As the crisis unfolds, you’ll also be guided through how to co-ordinate the overall response and given a view through the lens of multiple different roles at the organisation.

The day combines an interactive exercise with expert training on the key skills required to lead a successful ransomware response.

  • The latest cyber threats, and how to negotiate a ransom
  • How to co-ordinate multiple teams, both internal and external, in the response
  • The technical and operational considerations for a fast recovery
Who is the masterclass suitable for?

The masterclass is ideal for C-level executives responsible for technology, operations, cyber security, business continuity, resilience and risk teams.

We recommend bringing 2 or more attendees, from multiple departments.

Using a scenario-based appraoch, we will walk you through three stages of a cyber-attack and highlight best practices for response and recovering.

You play the part of the Crisis Leadership Team, and will collaborate to explore the callenges of the response.

The three stages are:

  • The initial response, including keeping the business going, and best practices for digital forensics and cyber incident response
  • The executive response, including crisis communications, leadership, the effect of insurance policies and the tricky question of whether to pay up
  • Recovery from the attack, lessons from 100+ ransomware recoveries and the considerations for getting your business operational again while minimising business impact
