Tabletop Frequently Asked Questions

What's the timeframe for initiating the process? We maintain a conversational and adaptable approach in this exercise. The advantage is that we don't spend a long time crafting a simulation. We can change things based on the conversation's dynamics. This agility allows us to promptly get you what you need with these exercises.

Is it a prerequisite to have a pre-established plan to participate in tabletop exercises? Although it's not mandatory to have a pre-existing plan, it's strongly recommended. Engaging our team without a plan will still provide valuable insights into dealing with incidents, but the primary aim is to assess and validate your existing plan.

What type of incidents are typically simulated in your exercises? We assess the potential impact of an event on your organization ranging from 1-10 according to your testing preferences. Considering this scale and insights gathered about your environment and vulnerabilities, we tailor a scenario that aligns with your needs. A frequently encountered level is 7, comparable to a breach or attack.

What is the recommended frequency for conducting tabletop exercises? These simulations are designed to be a frequent and cost-effective tool. While organizations are typically advised to conduct these yearly, it's best to do them 2-4 times a year.
