REN-ISAC is proud to offer six physical security-focused discussion-based workshops to the higher education community. The workshop is focused on physical security, building around a controversial speaker scenario. There is also a significant cyber component 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 physical security, emergency management, information technology and security, and other subject matter experts.
