ALT for Ransomware Rapid Response

Rapidly mobilize your response to a ransomware attack

What It Is

When an organization has been hit with a ransomware attack, the ability to make quick, effective decisions is critical. Nemertes Adaptive Leadership Training (ALT) is a structured, proven methodology for training your technology and cybersecurity professionals to respond effectively in a cybersecurity crisis. Nemertes’ decades of technology and cybersecurity expertise paired with Donald Vandergriff’s groundbreaking, military fast-response training provides the foundation for this offering.

Too often, a ransomware Incident Response Plan (IRP) is just a document on a server; when the crisis emerges, the team struggles to respond. With ALT Ransomware Rapid Response, Nemertes works with your team to fine-tune your ransomware IRP and ensure that your team is able to execute on it effectively in a variety of circumstances. Based on the principles of outcome-based learning (OBL) deployed in military training around the world, ALT employs facilitated, immersive, problem-centric decision-making exercises.

The use of scenario-based decision exercises as part of an outcomes-centric approach to learning is a game-changer…. This approach is applicable to all types of organizations.

What You Get

Over the training period, Nemertes works with your team to enhance and improve your ransomware incident response plan (IRP) and takes small teams of individuals through a carefully structured sequence of workshops, guiding participants to develop and strengthen key leadership capabilities.

Your organization comes away with a comprehensive ransomware IRP and the confidence your team can execute on it. Program participants come away with enhanced abilities in:

  • Critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Decision making in the face of confounding variables
  • Taking action under time pressure
  • Effectively adapting to a rapidly-changing environment

As part of the program, participants receive a “ransomware best practices” toolkit, an up-to-date ransomware IRP customized for your organization, and an extensive bibliography enabling them to pursue key concepts in depth.

Graduates of this program receive a “Certificate of Completion, Specialized ALT: Ransomware Rapid Response.” As follow-on to the training, participants also have the option of participating in an ongoing ALT graduate seminar, through which participants continue to meet with ALT facilitators and to further their leadership skills.
