PNWER Cybersecurity Situational Awareness Project Workshop

Join us for the Cybersecurity Situational Awareness Project Workshop on June 18, 2018, from 9:00-11:00AM at the Seattle Police Department Headquarter's Training Room located at 610 5th Ave in Seattle.

The purpose of the Cybersecurity Situational Awareness Project is to create a clear process and method for reporting cybersecurity incidents, enhance situational awareness, and foster a regional information and resource sharing community across jurisdictions and sectors. The overarching goal of the project is to develop a Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for a standardized regional reporting method for significant cyber incidents and to define the who,what, when, and where of that process.

At the Workshop, we invite you to provide input on the latest draft CONOPS that has been developed.

Since the workshop in March, the scope of the project has expanded to include all critical infrastructure sectors within the region. The project initially focused on the maritime industry specifically, but the project scope has expanded to include all regional partners.

Be prepared to:

  • Discuss and provide input on the latest draft version of the CONOPS that is being developed 
  • Help in crafting the process for the reporting of significant cyber incidents in the region
  • Assist in defining the thresholds for what constitutes a significant cyber incident
  • Discuss with other regional stakeholders the best methods and expectations for sending, receiving, and sharing information during and after the reporting of cyber incidents

Take the Cybersecurity Situational Awareness Survey & Self-Assessment at bit.ly/cybsurvey. This short survey (should take less than 10 minutes) is designed to give us information to develop a baseline of the current cyber-security response and resilience of local organizations.

More information and a detailed agenda will be released shortly.
