Quantum Dawn 2

Simulation to exercise cyber resilience and crisis management capabilities

What happens when the financial services industry gathers to test its cyberattack preparedness?

Report on the findings of cyber attack exercise

A​ number of high-profile media reports have called attention to the growing threat of cyberattacks, which often have little forewarning and can happen rapidly or over a period of time, requiring the financial services industry to be vigilant and ready to respond.

On July 18, 2013, the industry set out to exercise its capabilities to respond to a wide-scale cyberattack. The Quantum Dawn 2 cyber-exercise, hosted by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), represented the next step in the continuing effort by the sector to improve its ability to coordinate and respond to a systemic cyber-attack.

This high-level report provides a view of the exercise’s objectives, its cyberattack scenario, results, and lessons learned.
