The Exercise Group7

Newrisk Limited is one of the founder members of The Exercise Group7 LLP which provides exercises that are intended to build confidence and capability in workforces, assist morale and protect critical infrastructure components to ensure a sustainable work environment and workforce protection.  Tailored design of the scenario and exercise activities for clients supports deterrence, detection and delaying of hostile attacks.

The exercises proactively create defences from cyber and physical security attacks by hostile actors and focus on critical protection of personnel and key business and government operations, structures and reputation. 

Founded by 7 people internationally renowned for responding to extreme threats to the public and critical infrastructure, CNI and business organisations and support personnel practising survival tactics across a number of contexts - including during travel to and from work, within local areas/buildings and within the office environment.  

The Exercise Group7 LLP exercises include (but not limited to):

          BREAKING NEWS

  • Cyber
  • Nuclear

Prepare for the unexpected. New forms of attack will be unexpected in time, tactics and consequences and may include kinetic attacks on undersea cables and space infrastructure. 

Questions to Consider:
Does the organisation have a capacity to fast switch to other cloud, in-house server or hot site operations to limit recovery time? Are there diagnostics for sensors and control systems and the interface with operations?  Could a global security crisis in the South and East China Seas and flash points elsewhere (including Europe) target an organisation’s upstream cyber providers?  Other resilience tasks to check are:

  • - Competent external recovery services;
  • - Internal policies for real time back- up systems unconnected to live operations;
  • - Financial resources for full re-build after ransomware;
  • - Internal policies to avert ransomware payments; 
  • - Cooperative recovery planning with industry peers;
  • - Regular modular and  whole of organisation exercises;
- Multiple scenario tests for strength of preparedness.

 Nations signalling intent of conflict.
 Energy regeneration challenges.

Nuclear conflict and radiation incidents are a high risk for some regions.  Nations are engaging in
‘signalling’ capability of weapons and intent. The most frequent signals are coming from China in
relation to Taiwan; the USA in relation to freedom of navigation in the South China Sea; Russia in
sending Zircon hypersonic missiles onto naval voyages into the Atlantic, movement of nuclear
weapons to Belarus and threats to Ukraine; North Korea in frequency of missile tests including
submarine launched missiles and drones; and Iran’s apparent nuclear enrichment found to be at
84% purity.

Planning for Energy Regeneration Post Nuclear Conflict:
1. Hardened energy infrastructure;
2. Academic and Industry collaborative Programmes;
3. Small Modular Reactors built underground;
4. Supplemental critical control system separated from IOT; and
5. Energy planning for rail transportation of populations.
