Ransomware has rapidly emerged as one of the most visible cybersecurity threats, resulting in an inability for the unprepared to carry out critical business functions, potentially costing millions of dollars in damages in recovery efforts, loss of productivity, and reputational damage. This training is free of charge and for ICBA member banks only. Registration limited to 500 participants.

Because cybersecurity incidents can be so impactful to an organization’s operations, it is important for organizations to understand how to effectively prepare for, detect, triage, respond to, and recover from cybersecurity incidents, while also minimizing impacts to operations. This process, known as incident management, is vital for any organization, large or small, to recover effectively and is a key success factor in achieving operational resilience.

This Cybersecurity Incident Management Workshop is designed to help participants understand the concepts and key elements of incident management, as well as the planning, implementation, and testing of an incident management program.

The CISA Cybersecurity Incident Management Workshop is non-technical, and conducted as a 3½ hour video call facilitated by CISA Cybersecurity Advisors. The workshop is intended to be informative and interactive, tailored to the concerns and threats of the financial services sector and provides an opportunity for professionals to learn together.
