The attack on critical infrastructure, will challenge participants and showcase the attack impacting the business, technical and legal response.


Your organization has been hit by a cyber attack!

  • How do you know?  Is your website down?
  • Has a ransom request been received for your intellectual property?

What do you do now?  How do you react?

  • What policies or procedures are in place?
  • Are they up-to-date? Do they cover this situation?

What is the impact of this attack?

  • On current customers? On your reputation?
  • What are your liabilities?
