Schedule of Events:


October 8

Assessing Business Cyber Risk –
Simulation for Business Leaders
Assessing cyber risk is one of the most important yet misunderstand element of operating a business in today’s world. It is a multi-spectral, cross disciplinary, and collaborative task that is often overshadowed by the more technical elements of cybersecurity. Additionally, the process of forming actionable intelligence out of raw information is often hindered by organizational issues such as lack of coordination, poor information sharing practices, and intellectual bias. The Analytical War Game-Cyber is a hybrid online-live simulation meant to help bridge this gap between technical and strategic analysis, as well as resolve the most common organizational barriers to conducting effective cyber risk assessment and mitigation.
