The two-day exercise enables security, risk, and IT professionals to experience extremely realistic scenarios in order to train and test critical cyber incident response practices. The exercise is conducted across hundreds of participant teams in a safe, monitored environment. Ultimately these exercises are designed to help harden financial institutions against present and future cyberattacks.
"As the longest running annual cyber security simulation run by and for financial services organizations, hundreds of firms and thousands of participants have benefited from this annual exercise," says Bill Nelson, president and CEO, FS-ISAC. "The exercise is designed to test existing preparation and practices, promote cross-functional collaboration and quickly identify gaps. It also helps enable rapid information gathering and analysis that can be turned into actionable cyber security and incident response improvements. We expect a record participation this year and welcome all qualified organizations to register."
