Cyber Attack Simulation (by CyberFish, starting 8.45am)

This scenario, led by Cyber Fish, focuses on the experience of MoneySafe Bank, as it is targeted by a developing malicious ransomware cyber attack. Playing the scenario, delegates will be addressing a number of events and will be taken through technical, organisational and professional challenges. Players will take on the role of the Bank’s Incident Response Team. You will be expected to make key assessments, decisions and recommendations over the course of the incidents as the attack intensifies across the Bank, managing the demands of the panicked clients, the public and media, financial regulators and data protection authorities, investigatory authorities and international information-sharing networks among other challenges.
