FS-ISAC Cyber-Attack Against Payment Systems (CAPS) Exercises

Plan your practice. Practice your plan.

How would your financial institution respond to a cyber-attack?
Find out by participating in the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) Cyber-Attack Against Payment Systems (CAPS) exercises. Participate from your own premises in a virtual, confidential two-day, tabletop exercise that simulates an attack on payment systems and processes.

Challenge Incident Response Teams

The CAPS exercises present a robust, real-world cyber-attack designed to challenge incident response teams to:
Practice mobilizing quickly;
Work under pressure;
Critically apprise information, as it is available; and
Connect the cyberdots to defend against an attack.

Find Gaps and Build Stronger Response Plans

Participating in the CAPS exercises helps teams:
Gain maximum benefit with minimal resources;
Strengthen team relationships and cross-functional knowledge;
Build a clearer understanding of system vulnerabilities; and
Drive exploration of improvements in response processes.
FS-ISAC membership is not required to participate in these free exercises.
