Jim McGee, director of programming at The National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security, moderates a tabletop disaster training exercise for University of Southern Mississippi officials on Tuesday, March 9, 2010. In the simulated crisis, participants were confronted with a malicious cyber attack against the university’s Information Technology systems. The tabletop exercise presented real-world scenarios that challenged Southern Miss decision makers with minimizing cyber disruptions, outages, denials of service and computer intrusions while maintaining continuity of operations.
