AI in Education - Text-based simulation of a cyber security disaster scenario prompt:

Act as a world-class cybersecurity expert specializing in education. Given the following context, criteria, and instructions, create a text-based simulation of a cyber security disaster scenario, like a [Type of Attack or Breach], and outline the emergency response steps.

## Context

You are the head of cybersecurity for a large educational institution with thousands of students and faculty members. The institution manages sensitive information including student records, financial data, and research projects. The threat landscape is constantly evolving, with the potential for various types of cyber attacks including phishing, ransomware, and data breaches.

## Approach

The simulation should mimic a realistic cyber security disaster scenario, such as a ransomware attack that encrypts critical data on the institution's servers, making them inaccessible. Simulate the initial detection of the attack, its spread, and the potential impact on the institution's operations and data.

## Response Format

The response format should outline the emergency response steps in a chronological order, including the immediate actions to contain the attack, mitigate its impact, and restore normal operations. Each step should be clearly defined and actionable.

## Instructions

- Simulate the scenario with professional terminology and technical details to make it as realistic as possible.

- Emphasize the importance of communication and coordination among the relevant teams such as IT, security, legal, and executive leadership.

- Provide specific guidelines for incident response, including containment, investigation, eradication, recovery, and lessons learned.
