Steel Resolve is an FS-ISAC hosted, sector-specific, multi-day, real-time exercise for large institutions. The exercise will cover a two-and-a-half-day period that tests the sector’s incident coordination and communication mechanisms, as outlined in FS-ISAC’s Intelligence Sharing and Crisis Management Framework. It creates an environment where the participants must test existing sector coordination and sharing policies and processes and identify operational gaps in the implementation of these playbooks.
In the two-and-a-half-day exercise, participants will receive notifications related to fictional events taking place at their firms, prompting them to respond by activating their internal incident management process and ultimately determining when or if they would share information about the incident with peer firms, FS-ISAC, or government partners.
