Cybersecurity Incident Tabletop Exercises
Strategic Cybersecurity Response Planning
Tabletop exercises take attack scenarios out of the virtual world and transform them into a simulation similar to a board game. The focus is purely on your strategic ability to respond to an attack.
Our team of certified cybersecurity testers engages with your organization in an attack attempt. At the conclusion of the exercise, people have a better understanding of the role they play in a cybersecurity attack and the proper actions to take should certain events unfold.
This type of approach allows for a closer look at each step in the attack process, and enables each person to know their role. As we take one step in an attack, your security team must determine the appropriate countermeasure. The actions taken by each side are weighted, with a winning side named after each round. Game play is repeated, and the data is collected and gathered.
Tabletop exercises can be constructed for various levels within your organization, from the incident response team all the way up to the C-Suite. While IR teams will engage in a more technical game, an executive-level simulation focuses on cybersecurity policies and procedures. The entire organization can benefit from this service.
Tabletop exercises prepare people at all levels for different attack scenarios, so everyone is prepared for a possible incident. After the event is complete, we provide a situational summary of the exercise.
