Workshop about Cyber Crisis Response

7. October 2020

With Michael Bem, Executive Director at the Chief Information Security Office of UBS

Michael led a workshop exercising cyber crisis response at a fictitious entity. The students, split up in small teams, were confronted with a fictitious scenario of a cyber crisis, and were tasked to respond to the crisis. After a lively exchange between the teams and Michael Bem, the scenario was extended and worsened, and the students had to react to the incident in light of the new data and risks. After the workshop, Michael Bem shared his advice on how to efficiently tackle this kind of crisis, especially in a business context, and gave insight into relevant tools, techniques and processes. The students then had the opportunity to network and engage with Michael Bem about his work and career at UBS.
