SC2236 - Three Simple and Effective Cybersecurity Exercises

Oct 10, 2022 4:00pm ‐ Oct 10, 2022 5:00pm


The genesis of many cybersecurity exercises begins with a simple request: An executive approaches a manager and says, “We need a tabletop. Get it done.” This request may stir up angst as some planning is required and, to some, may be a new experience.

But what do you do when you simply don’t have the luxury of ample time to plan for a cybersecurity exercise? How do you conduct a cybersecurity exercise that is simple yet effective and worth the participants’ valuable time?

This presentation will present three simple cybersecurity exercise ideas that may be conducted with minimal planning, are applicable to most organizations and will deliver value by identifying potential deficiencies or confirming the efficacy of existing processes.

Learning Objectives:
  • Demystify the tabletop planning experience.
  • Introduce best practices to will enable attendees to meet tabletop exercise requirements.
  • Convey three simple cybersecurity tabletop exercise scenarios that may be leveraged by the attendees with very little planning.
