The simulation was conducted in two parts, designed to stress test the crisis team on various elements such as regulatory requirements, interaction with government cyber teams, social media and customer communications, internal communications, and the technical resolution of the incident.

Case Study: Cyber Simulation Exercise

These interactive simulations, lasting 3 to 4 hours, demand both team collaboration and intense focus from all participants. Following each session, a team debrief assesses successes, team strengths, identified gaps, and necessary remedial actions. Through continuous role-play, participants develop “muscle memory,” enhancing readiness, confidence, and support capabilities for real disasters.
