The Trust engaged Cyber Management Alliance to conduct a non-technical Ransomware Tabletop Exercise for its senior leadership. The Exercise is also a part of the Trust’s ongoing endeavour to continuously enhance and bolster its cybersecurity capabilities.
"We engaged Cyber Management Alliance Ltd as a specialist cybersecurity consultancy to conduct and facilitate a non-technical Ransomware Tabletop Exercise for members of our senior leadership as part of our continuous endeavour of improvement in cybersecurity."

Northern Lincolnshire And Goole NHS Foundation Trust
Catherine elaborated on the Trust’s experience with Cyber Management Alliance & the facilitator, Amar Singh.
She said, “Cyber Management Alliance Ltd assigned its experienced practitioner Amar Singh to plan, produce and conduct the tabletop session.
Working with Tonya Fredrickson, the Trust’s IT Security Manager and other staff, Amar conducted the fact finding and then planned the ransomware scenario to make it relevant and contextual to our organisation.
Further, the exercise was conducted in a way that made the scenario feel real for the participants. They were encouraged to think like and respond as they would in an actual crisis.
Amar is a great facilitator. He is highly experienced which makes his insights very useful to all participants. But more importantly, he really knows how to engage a room full of business executives who may not always be in the loop with all technical aspects of cyber and ransomware prevention and response.
The ransomware tabletop exercise conducted by Cyber Management Alliance gave us exactly the kind of output we were expecting and met all our objectives.
The executive report shared with us at the end was insightful and highlighted our strengths and weaknesses clearly. We know what needs to be worked upon and where we need more clarity.
Thanks CM-Alliance and Amar for this extremely helpful and critical exercise in our overall cyber resilience strategy.”
