The DDN 601 Blue Team Con masterclass and tabletop is for CIO's, CISO's, their incident response teams, disclosure committees and even the corporate directors of U.S. public companies who want to understand how to adopt and apply the SEC cybersecurity incident disclosure rules. 

The SEC cybersecurity disclosure rules have presented cybersecurity executives with a leadership moment as your role grows in importance in the C-suite and boardroom. DDN 601 at Blue Team Con will help you step up to this moment. 


"Brilliant framework from Bob Zukis and the DDN team."

DDN 601 is taught in-person at Blue Team Con and is a 4-hour interactive executive learning experience with expert lectures, peer discussion and applied group case studies.

This masterclass/tabletop is a business school-caliber learning experience taught by the leading experts, advisors, CISO practitioners and corporate directors in cybersecurity governance. 

Participants will be taught the BRFOTM process for cybersecurity incident materiality determination. Based upon systemic BLAST RADIUS analysis and FALLOUT impacts, BRFOTM provides SEC registrants with an informed and deliberative process for making a cybersecurity incident materiality disclosure determination in response to the SEC rules.

The masterclass addresses the need to consistently analyze and document incident materiality determination for Form 8-K disclosure, and the requirement to describe the process in place for doing so on Form 10-K.  

Participants will receive a course Certificate of Completion to document their learning experience. 


This class has two key learning objectives focused on enabling participants to apply an informed and deliberative process for determining cybersecurity incident materiality in response to the SEC cybersecurity disclosure rules. 

1. Improve the understanding of incident response teams, cybersecurity leaders, corporate boards and management teams of the SEC disclosure requirements for cybersecurity incidents including the concepts of materiality and reasonable investor. 

2. Enable participants to adopt and apply an informed and deliberative process to support and document their decision-making for determining cybersecurity incident materiality.  

Upon completion of the course, participants will:

  • Understand the new SEC disclosure rules.
  • Be able to apply and implement the BRFO(TM) process.
  • Be able to apply a consistent process to understand cybersecurity incident impacts and their materiality under SEC rules.
