REN-ISAC’s custom made Blended Threat Resilience Workshop Series created a unique enterprise approach to risk management. In 2018 and 2019, a total of 12 workshops was offered to the higher education community.
Across the United States, our members and guests joined experts from a variety fields in responding to a blended physical and cyber threat set at a fictional college campus. In addition to a realistic, hands-on learning experience, all participants received an individual workshop report and a summary report for the entire series.
The 2019 workshop series’ scenario focused on an on-campus measles outbreak and subsequent cyber component impacting university data. All in higher education were welcome to attend, and we encouraged subject matter experts from health care, physical security, emergency management, information technology and security, and other pertinent subject matter experts to join us.
