Table Top Exercises are a crucial tool for crisis management


A Tabletop Exercise (TTX) is a critical tool for crisis management, enabling organisations to simulate responses to security incidents, writes in its latest blog post.

As part of its business continuity strategy, performs annual TTX. The aim is to strengthen responsiveness to information security threats, refine procedures, and fortify incident response capabilities. This proactive approach involves all employees, reflecting their regular roles to ensure a comprehensive evaluation of the registry's response mechanisms. 

A typical scenario involves a security incident like detecting a network anomaly, suspected to be a ransomware attack, which triggers an immediate response from the IT and crisis teams, activating the business continuity plan. The exercise covers crisis management, decision-making, public relations efforts, and compliance considerations. 

The primary objectives are to identify procedural gaps, validate the effectiveness of response plans, ensure efficient communication, and enhance employee awareness and security culture. Post-exercise, a thorough review identifies strengths and areas for improvement, fostering a safer, more prepared organisational environment.
