Horizon Blue Cyber Crisis Training

Speak to the team

Crisis management training for management teams informed by real cyber threats and current intelligence

Get your organisation cyber crisis ready


"Having a crisis plan is a good start. Most leaders know the plan isn't worth much unless it's tested in a real life scenario." 

- Carden Calder MD, BlueChip Communication

While information security measures are an important first line of defence, recent high-profile breaches showed that Boards and management teams also need new operational, regulatory, and stakeholder capabilities to successfully manage a cyber crisis. 

With the growing risk of cyberattacks from ransomware, denial of service and other potential threats, the Horizon Blue Cyber Crisis Training challenges and strengthens your organisation and leadership’s readiness for any expected “when, not if” cybersecurity crisis.

The Boards and executives that undertake this training gain immediate insights into their vulnerabilities and - crucially - the actions needed to strengthen their crisis response capabilities.

Our Reviews

"In a crisis it is often a failure of imagination that has left you unprepared. The (BlueChip) team expertly simulated a scenario where events spiraled. It felt real and this helped reveal the strengths and gaps in our response processes and team. I came away from it feeling much more confident that our imagination has been stretched and our responses sharpened as a result of this work."

- Scott Langford, Group CEO, SGCH

The Process


We lead a tailor-made cybersecurity response exercise with your response team acting in real-time as responders to possible scenarios, events, news and stakeholder behaviours based on real-world scenarios. 

In a contained and safe environment, executive teams:

  • Manage a challenging fast-paced scenario in a high-pressure environment, simulating a real crisis, including communication to and from all relevant stakeholders. 
  • Practice your existing incident or crisis response processes and skills.
  • Explore known and unexpected vulnerabilities.

Tailored Simulation Experience

Our tailored simulation experience allows your organisation to put your cyber readiness protocols through a simulated cyber crisis under crisis conditions in a controlled session facilitated by Horizon Blue.


Coaching & Upskilling

Horizon Blue conducts a full team debriefing and provides small group or one-on-one feedback to the C-suite and Board. Participants exit the simulation with better awareness of their own strengths and skills gaps, stronger team dynamics and insight, language and tools to improve their organisational response. Further coaching is available through optional training modules 

Audit & Advice

Following the simulation and debriefing, Horizon Blue provides recommendations to the organisation to strengthen its existing response informed by a comprehensive review of existing crisis management plans and processes as well as the organisation’s exercise performance and recommendations.
