Participate in our Tabletop Scenario and see if you can avoid the disaster we’re aiming to throw at you.

Running a Tabletop Scenario is the single most effective way to test your reactions to a Major Incident – short of burning down your data centre, or simply waiting until the worst happens.

Seasoned security and technology communicator James Bore has kindly offered to run a scenario with us. Together we’ll discover first-hand the power and value of bringing together the key people in an organisation to face their own worst nightmares.

Scenarios are a potent tool to satisfy compliance around Disaster Planning, Business Continuity and Major Incident Management. Akin to war games, they provide valuable experiential learning, as well as stress-inoculation, leading to more resilient teams and estates.

Join us as a member of the team at fictional Fobling District Council, in rural Norsex. Witness the day when they find themselves in the midst of misfortune, as issues with their assets turn into a cyber-incident that unravels the world around them and their residents.

Everyone loves a disaster movie, now is your chance to star in one! Come and experience for yourself what James promises will be the most stressful fun that you’re likely to find.
