"A really good session, the trainer is really knowledgeable and presents everything in a really understandable format that the participants really enjoyed. Quite a difficult subject to get over sometimes but I think he presented it really well. Nice mixture of technical knowledge and practical examples. Good for a very mixed audience as it wasn't overly technical. I highly recommend it in terms of bringing a mixed group up to speed with the importance of responding to a cyber incident, and what the essentials are, about dealing with it, with both the forensic side and the whole publicity side around it. A really good event and from an IT perspective, what I wanted to get out of it was engagement from the organisation. We could have an organisational approach not just a technically-focussed rectification if we are impacted by a cyber incident, which I think we really achieved. Everyone went away buzzing and quite keen to go to the next stage and build on this training. From my perspective, really good event. Highly recommend it." Wayne Parks - Head of ICT - Warwickshire Police
The content of the course and the expertise of the trainer was very good. Personally, I learned a lot and my team and I picked up a lot. We also figured that there’s a lot more that needs to be done and we’ve been given ways to justify things that we need to have as part of our defence. Part of your material has also shown us how to convince our partners in other units, like infrastructure, to maximise existing tools and better use the tools to further protect the bank.
"I would like to give my feedback on the Cybersecurity Incident Response planning training given by Amar from Cyber Management Alliance.I was very, very excited to meet Amar since I had known him for a while. It was a very good opportunity and we learnt a lot and my team enjoyed the session. I personally enjoyed the training, the content and how it was delivered. These two days were very good, very fruitful, very interesting and we also talked around this topic of Incident Planning and Response. I encourage everyone to follow this training. Also, a very good point is that the certification is recognised by the British Government and that's something very valuable." Jean-Michel Briffaut - Rail OT Cybersecurity Manager- Serco Group Plc
I found this course very helpful with real-world examples. There are a couple of very good areas that I am going to review and I have already started speaking to my boss who is going to be on this course in July. I think some of the stuff here is just straight to the point and something we can implement quickly. Rather than some of the over complex solutions that we've come up with. Even the cyber response plan etc., I'm very keen on. There are some really key points here that I think we can take out and use going forward.
"I found today's course very productive... discussing the various aspects of incident response. The course is very clearly presented; I fully understood the content and look forward to putting some of the stuff into practice. Thank you." Eaun Ramsay- CSIRT- UBS Bank
"I've just attended the Cyber Incident Response training, it was really spot on, very practical, non-technical. I have a couple of great take-aways for myself for my everyday work. Highly recommend it for non technical people." Catherine Gloor - Executive Director - UBS
"The major takeaway has been preparedness. Creating a balance of Technical Risks and People Risks and having a plan in readiness for when a cyber attack occurs." Richard Paskin - IT Security Manager - University Hospital Birmingham(NHS)
The CIPR course exceeded expectations. An instructor with vast experience brought the course to life. My entire team was engaged and we now appreciate not only the technical perspective of a high priority incident, but the non-technical managerial perspective. A must have course for any SOC involved in incident response and planning.
