Crisis training with Kew Gardens’ Executive Board

The Royal Botanic Gardens in the UK wanted to test their ability to respond to a cyber incident. We facilitated a half-day simulation for their Executive Board, based on a realistic data breach scenario.

The objectives of the session were to :

  • Rehearse Kew Gardens’ response to a Business Continuity incident in line with their plan 
  • Test the process of mobilising and drawing on support functions identifying gaps in plans and processes
  • Work through the escalation process and management of external stakeholders in a contained scenario environment

Project Outcomes

  • Executive Board have now rehearsed mobilising and coordinating their response
  • Gaps identified in existing processes
  • Kew Gardens have streamlined their escalation process
  • Roles and responsibilities have been more clearly defined
