FS-ISAC Cyber-Attack Against Payment Systems (CAPS) Exercises


Plan your practice. Practice your plan.

How would your financial institution respond to a cyber-attack?
Find out by participating in the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) Cyber-Attack Against Payment Systems (CAPS) exercises. Participate from your own premises in a virtual, confidential two-day, tabletop exercise that simulates an attack on payment systems and processes.

Challenge Incident Response Teams

The CAPS exercises present a robust, real-world cyber-attack designed to challenge incident response teams to:
• Practice mobilizing quickly;
• Work under pressure;
• Critically apprise information, as it is available; and
• Connect the cyberdots to defend against an attack.

Find Gaps and Build Stronger Response Plans

Participating in the CAPS exercises helps teams:
• Gain maximum benefit with minimal resources;
• Strengthen team relationships and cross-functional knowledge;
• Build a clearer understanding of system vulnerabilities; and
• Drive exploration of improvements in response processes.
FS-ISAC membership is not required to participate in these free exercises.
