Large cyber crises that cause society to grind to a halt have become a common occurrence. Tackling them requires a holistic approach: technical solutions to restore the IT systems, political negotiations on how to help people affected by it, engineering decisions to contain them.

We will begin by showing you a simple but useful framework that you can use to break down a cyber crisis into more manageable chunks. Then we will let you try it out yourself by splitting you into small teams and having you interact with small crises caused by something cyber going wrong. To aid you a bit, we will provide you with some possible policy responses that you can then discuss and decide which one you like best. You will not need to have any technical knowledge here, since the core of the response is about figuring out priorities and how to communicate them.
