Wall Street preparing for Quantum Dawn 2 Cyber Attack


I just recently mentioned summer is a great time to be testing.  Well, the SEC believes so as well.  They are performing a full cyber attack training on June 28 around 9 a.m. EST.  Dubbed “Quantum Dawn 2″.

Now the SEC has billions of dollars at risk and trading systems which cannot fail without catastrophe, it seems logical they would simulate a cyber attack.  But even small firms can take away the lesson that testing is critical to their operations.  You may not need full cyber attack testing, but your critical systems and backup should be tested.  It may not be billions of dollars at risk in your company, but even thousands of dollars is important to small businesses.
