Crisis management has been a growing theme for the NREN community in the last couple of years. In 2016, a group of enthusiastic members from SIG-Marcomms, SIG-NOC, TF-CSIRT and SIG-ISM started discussing ways to help the NREN community tackle this challenging subject. This initiative resulted in the first CLAW event in 2017 and grew into a yearly event to help all NRENs improve their crisis management preparedness.
- Training sessions for different facets of crisis management (for instance: stress management, internal and external communication and leadership).
- Sharing experiences and knowledge between people from different NRENs through presentations and working dinners.
- A crisis management exercise at the end of the event to test the participants’ newly acquired skills.
All the materials are made for the participants to take home to their own organizations. Each year, about 60 people from about twenty different NRENs participate in CLAW. Throughout the years, these participants and other interested parties have organized their own exercises and trainings with the material from CLAW.
