We ensure our ransomware tabletop exercise scenarios are relevant and contextual to the organisation thus keeping the threats on top-of-mind and gradually increasing overall preparedness.
One of our objectives when we conduct ransomware tabletop exercises is to present tangible response questions to the attendees. This approach helps build subconscious muscle memory.
We typically ask that people from different departments or business units attend the ransomware tabletop session as it helps increase interdepartmental collaboration and interaction.
The Ransomware Tabletop Exercise Template designed and run by us is a unique blend of verbal and visual simulations organised as a combination of ransomware scenario walkthroughs and engaging and practical exercises.
The image on the right describes, step-by-step, how we approach our ransomware tabletop workshops.
Our detailed planning and professional approach produces the desired results - that of ensuring the business is prepared to deal with ransomware attacks.
Clients can opt to receive a formal scoring for the ranswomare tabletop exercise and demonstrate compliance to regulations and auditors.
Our attention to detail and comprehensive preparation will help you validate and improve your ransomware response plans and ensure they are effective and fit-for-purpose.
Safely evaluate your ransomware plans, review your critical decisions and gauge the impact on your critical systems and clients.
Our aim is to produce realistic and relevant ransomware scenarios, engage the stakeholders, improve their learning, thus increasing retention of key response actions and stakeholder responsibility.
After the tabletop exercise, you receive a formal executive summary and report that contains a high level analysis of existing processes, procedures and their effectiveness.
