War Games, Simulations, and Scenarios: Preparing Organisations for Long Term Cyber Resilience

Abstract

You can’t know that something will work in a certain scenario until you test it. But how can you test your cyber resilience plans to give you assurance? Drawing on Aon’s experience of multiple facets of war gaming, conducting simulations and exercising scenarios we will explore ways to approach the problem – from looking at scenarios from the financial perspective, to exercising plans at the management or board level, to limited or full scale simulations and tests.

We will draw on our experience from numerous cyber risk engagements and matters with clients, and discuss war stories of how the unexpected and unforeseen will often be teased out via the process of scenario-based simulation.

Cybergeddon vs. Cybertopia: Key variables in determining the future of cyber risk

Abstract

The cyber risk landscape changes daily, making projections about the tomorrow difficult, let alone the next 10 years. The variable nature of cyber risk means that the potential futures concerning it can fall anywhere from a 'cybergeddon' to a 'cybertopia'. This presentation aims to give insight to attendees on the variables that are key to determining which futures are developing.
