Simulated attacks have become a critical part of a cybersecurity training and awareness program. It is important to test employees’ ability to identify these attacks and share the results. Over time, the Firm’s security posture will improve with a continuous cybersecurity training program.
INCIDENT RESPONSE AND TABLETOP EXERCISES
A key component of the Firm’s training program is testing its recovery procedures. There is always a possibility that your firm may face a compromise.
Incident Response Tabletop Exercise (TTX)
An Incident Response Tabletop Exercise (TTX) is a security incident preparedness exercise which takes key stakeholders through the process of dealing with a simulated incident scenario.
Hands-On Training for Employees and Participants
Hands-on training for these participants is conducted to ensure the Firm’s response in the event of a real cybersecurity breach is up to par.
Strategic and Technical Response Review
Both the strategic and technical response are reviewed over the course of multiple scenario simulations based on real world examples in a roundtable environment.
Testing your Incident Response Plan through a Tabletop Exercise with key stakeholders, is essential to avoid confusion or an improper response during an incident.
