The rapidly growing number of cyberthreats highlight not just an organisation’s ability to plan and protect, but the skill of management at senior board level to react in an informed and positive manner if a security breach occurs.
ExCyb is a new organisation started by former senior police officers with many years of substantial strategic crisis management in multiple fields including civil unrest, terrorism and cybersecurity. This experience has been distilled into a new training programme that will provide bespoke modules that focus on specific cybersecurity threats to an organisation.
This turnkey approach delivers real-life immersive scenario-based learning. It will help leaders understand the challenges of managing a range of levels within different crises. The incidents are developed in live time and are made realistic with bespoke video footage that raises the realism of what colleagues might face. It starts with a relatively minor issue that builds into a full crisis. This includes many problems including public concern, media intrusion, stakeholder management, shareholder management, business continuity planning, preparedness, policies, procedures, resilience, team dynamics and tensions under pressure.
We provide a bespoke approach that ensures each client receives precisely the right training dictated by their individual needs.
