Event description

Description

This is a 3-day course delivered by TEEX and hosted at the City of Los Angeles Emergency Management Department.

Cybersecurity has become one of the nation’s most serious challenges today. However, the role of emergency managers in preventing, mitigating, and responding to a major cyber incident with physical consequences remains unclear. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s May 2016 National Preparedness Report, cybersecurity is still one of the lowest rated capabilities in the State Preparedness Report—and many states have reported that they do not expect to focus on building additional capacity in this field.

Participants will engage in a one day of overview to cyber incidents, emergency operations centers, managing cyber incidents, and the EOC management process. This is followed up by slightly over two days of simulation-supported, emergency response exercises designed to hone individual and team decision-making as well as management skills.

This course is intended to be delivered across the country to jurisdictions at all response levels: local, state, tribal, territorial, as well as private industry.

Course Length:

This Course is 24 hours

Course Goal:
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to integrate cybersecurity personnel into the EOC to better manage a cyber incident.

Target Audience:
This course was developed for personnel assigned to work in the jurisdiction’s emergency operations center, policymakers, elected and/or appointed officials, emergency responders, information security and cybersecurity personnel and managers responsible for identifying and responding to cyber incidents for local government and private industry, and critical infrastructure representatives from both private and public sectors.

Course Prerequisites:
Participants are expected to have successfully completed IS-100b, IS-200, and IS-700.
Completion of IS-800 is also recommended. These courses can be found online at: https://training.fema.gov/is/

Cyber Incident Awareness Training and Emergency Management for IT Professionals are also recommended, and can be found online at: http://www.nuarilearn.com/Pages/Home.aspx
