bespoke data incident and cyber attack workshop


Get Ahead
in Data Protection

with the Data Incident and cyber attack workshop

How well would your Senior Leadership Team (SLT) respond to a significant incident, like a cyber attack? Do you need help knowing how such a threat should be dealt with?

If so, then take this workshop. You’ll understand your organisation’s preparations, resilience, and response to cyber attacks and data protection breaches. The scenario exercise in the morning will be used to stress test and strengthen current plans within the organisation.

The purpose of the training is to assess how well the SLT and Management teams respond to a significant incident and understand how each business function participates in supporting the response.

The workshop will consist of a scenario-based activity, followed by a table-top discussion of the events. The scenario will address key themes, informed by industry trends, and tailored to reflect real-life events that may affect your organisation. Using industry knowledge of threats and vulnerabilities, DPAS will cover investigative techniques, governance, risk management, security measures, and appropriate processes, in relation to cyber security, and data protection.

The session will also include discussions around strategic, tactical, and operational threat intelligence, and how these components can aid the team in understanding trends, risks, consequences, and how they influence the decision-making process. Looking at the latest attack vectors and techniques to develop robust defence strategies and allocate security resources, highlighting the importance of operational intelligence and its role in aiding the technical response team to stop an attack.

By the end of the day the team will successfully examine the impacts of, and on, legal compliance and operational security within a real-life scenario. By completing this task the team will have created a high level gap analysis, and understand the components of an effective incident response plan, business continuity, and disaster recovery. Therefore, equipping attendees with a host of skills to develop appropriate policies and procedures, and remediate risks moving forward.

DPAS can also provide a follow on report which will look at a summary of the day, the process, findings and recommendations.

When you train with us at DPAS, you’ll get more than just the training. We’ll provide you with free policies, templates, and tools – after the workshop has concluded. We will also supply you with the relevant resources to help you throughout.
