- Evaluate cyber insurance and the alternative for retaining specific skills needed in event of a significant incident.
- Develop a program around a table top exercise(s) and walk-through drill/simulation test (external vendor).
- Provide input into the information security awareness program.
- Conduct post-hoc reviews of measures taken in response to digital emergencies and/or breaches concerning digital assets and their remediation, and based on these, make recommendations for future responses (determine root cause and document lessons learned).
The working group will seek input from key stakeholders and other interested parties (i.e. faculties and divisions, crisis management team, communications team, central and divisional IT units).
