Event Description

REN-ISAC is proud to offer six blended-threat, discussion-based workshops to the higher education community. Like last year, the workshop scenario is focused on physical security, with the subject of this year's scenario being a measles outbreak. There is also a significant cyber component impacting university data to emphasize an enterprise approach to risk management. The scenario for these workshops has been custom-made for REN-ISAC and offers a unique and realistic blend of physical and cyber threats for participants to consider. The workshops will be professionally facilitated. Each of the participants will receive a copy of the final report, and a summary report will be made available to the entire community.

All in higher education are welcome to attend, not just those from REN-ISAC member institutions. We expect exercise participants to represent health care, physical security, emergency management, information technology and security, and other subject matter experts.
