A brand new experience at CYSAT 2024

The Panic room - a cyber attack simulation

How would you react in a cybersecurity crisis? Find out in the Panic Room!

The Panic Room, a unique simulation of a cybersecurity attack.  A captivating experience where 12 participants get the opportunity to test their resilience in the face of a crisis. The best cyber defense is cyber-attack!

“Our goal is to test the behavior of teams in the face of a cyber attack, to detect weaknesses in companies’ security protocols, to analyze everyone’s behavior in situations close to reality” says Thierry Roux, Cap Cobra.

What to expect during the session?

In a stressful environment (dim lighting, noises, etc.), the group is confronted with well-documented crisis scenarios, for example: customer data breaches, company website deletions, ERP malfunctions, remote system takeovers, ransom demands. Each participant is assigned a specific role in a company’s hierarchy and must deal with the simulated situation. 

Register quickly as space is limited to 12 participants per session. The experience will be offered in both French and English.

Organized by Cap Cobra

Cap Cobra works tirelessly to enhance organization and train teams responsible for information security and cyber crisis management. The company’s main goal is to enhance organizations’ ability to protect and defend informational assets and business values.
