Cyber Readiness for Boards and Executives

Are you prepared for a cyber attack?

It has never been more important for Boards and Executives to understand their organisation’s cyber risks and their own role when enhancing enterprise security and responding to attacks. This is reflected in PwC’s 24th CEO Survey, with 95% of Australian CEOs identifying cyber risks as the top threat to business growth.

The rise of ransomware is just one threat that is testing both an organisation’s ability to respond to cyber attacks, as well as their enterprise-wide business continuity plans. The majority of businesses do not have a playbook that includes a decision framework to aid in making the best judgement calls in the ‘heat of the moment’.

Companies with tried and tested plans for responding to cyber attacks not only restore the business back to normal as quickly as possible, but protect its brand, reputation and financial stability.

A bespoke cyber crisis scenario created using our first-hand knowledge of cyber incidents in your industry. We’ve used this simulation to upskill some of Australia’s largest organisations. Co-developed with your key business & IT stakeholders to define the scope and scenarios to be simulated, we track and record each step of the exercise, and provide a report showcasing the strengths of the incident management procedures and gaps which need to be addressed.

Attack or respond? A team based, interactive cyber game
