The Cybersecurity and Digital Fraud Tabletop Incident Response Exercise is a half-day program for senior-level retail industry attendees, built around a scenario where a national company detects and responds to an incident that requires the engagement of the company’s cybersecurity and fraud prevention teams, as well as other enterprise business partners.
