Cyber Incident Exercises

We can provide cyber incident table top exercises, tailored to your organisation and suitable for executives, IT specialists or your incident response team.

You can’t defend against all security risks unfortunately. Incidents and breaches will occur and organisations need to be cyber resilient by being able to respond to and recover from incidents as quickly as possible.

Tailored To You:

We’ll gather information from you about your organisation such as details on your systems, response plans, stakeholders, customers, shareholders, likely threats and legal obligations – so that with your input, your scenario and escalations are tailored to meet your specific requirements.

We’ll also include social media and newspaper coverage mock-ups and prepare bespoke television news reports as shown in the following video.

We ensure that your security incident response team has rehearsed the types of scenarios it might face, through incident response exercises.

Helping You To Plan With Your Incident Response Team:

Our tabletop cyber incident exercises are designed to demonstrate and exercise your incident response plans, breach notification processes, escalation procedures and communications plans. We include your input into the scenarios to enable us to customise them for you by reference to matters such as:​

Identifying threats to your business
Creating scenario ‘injects'
Assessing incident response plans
Improving policies and procedures
Identification of your stakeholders
Security operation capabilities
Identification of escalation paths
Your IT environment
Your security controls

Our Exercise Methodology:

Our cyber incident exercises use the scenarios agreed with you during the planning stage. We can deliver the exercise onsite at your location, or remotely if preferred.

We can deliver a single exercise, based on one longer scenario or break up the day into multiple shorter exercises based on different scenarios.

Onsite exercises can be combined with interactive workshops for attendees. These can cover related topics such as the types of cyber threats faced by your organisation.

When delivering the exercise, we’ll start with introductions, then move into the scenario and finish with a wrap-up discussion. See below for more on each stage.

Your Exercise Structure

Exercise Introduction

This will set the scene based on the agreed scenario and will provide your organisation with an opportunity to review matters including your cyber incident detection and response capabilities and processes for sharing information and your relationships with key stakeholders (internal and external).​

Exercise Scenario & Escalations

Using scenario ‘injects’, we test your processes for responses to specific issues that may arise during an incident and pose questions about incident governance.


Post Exercise Debrief

During a wrap-up discussion, our facilitators will guide participants to identify your overall ability to identify, protect and respond to cyber incidents and to consider areas for improvement.

Report & Recommendations

During the table top exercises, our facilitators will take notes and identify strengths and areas for improvement in your incident response capabilities. After the onsite day, we will write these up in to a short report consisting of our findings and recommendations.​
