Cyber Prepare

Cyber Prepare is all about being resilient - how to bounce back quickly from a cyber incident with minimal disruption and impact. Having a good information assurance policy is the best way to be prepared. Do you conduct Cyber Drills?... you probably have fire drills so why not simulate a cyber incident, which is more likely to occur. Be ready, be resilient.
