Incident Response Tabletop Exercises
A tabletop exercise is a simulated real-world situation lead by a team leader. You can interact to exercise as they unfold in a controlled setting. Typically, the key members are involved that would be affected by an incident. How do you know if your plan will work? A plan that has not been tested may not work when a situation arises.
The exercise should be interactive, allowing all members to question and analyze the plan’s effectiveness. Testing your business continuity, data recovery, and incident response plans will help to find areas of improvement before a real incident occurs.
