Description

This course is designed to introduce cyber to exercise planners to help them recognize the nature and reach of cyber, so they can better help their communities prevent, detect, respond to, and recover from cyber incidents. Participants will recognize how cyber can be incorporated into exercises in a meaningful way. Participants will be introduced to cyber topics and how cyber can impact the business operations of an organization and community. Lecture and activities will explore objectives, players, cyber injects and challenges to incorporating cyber into exercises. Participants will be exposed to many possible injects and scenarios that can be used in an exercise. Participants will begin development of a community cybersecurity tabletop exercise. The Community Cybersecurity Maturity Model will be used to examine the contribution of exercises to a community’s overall cybersecurity posture. This course teaches planning personnel how to include cyber components in their regular planning process. Participants will be given the opportunity to plan cyber components for future community cybersecurity exercises.

Prerequisite

AWR-136 Essentials of Community Cybersecurity should be completed before attending this course.
