While a crisis is, by nature, unpredictable and uncertain, business leaders still need to ensure their company is prepared for whatever might come their way. Organizations must define their cybersecurity crisis management plan, processes, and tools in advance so that they can overcome unexpected events or cybersecurity attacks with little-to-no business disruption for them or their clients. To help companies master this governance, Wavestone offers cybersecurity crisis management exercises of all sizes and complexities with realistic crisis scenarios, from small table-top tests focused on participant awareness to complicated global exercises that require multiple cells all over the world.
