Cyber incident exercising – prepare your organisation

How you respond in a cyber crisis will determine how successfully you recover from it. But how can you prepare? How do you know if your incident response planning is robust enough?

At RightCue, our tailored cyber incident exercising services are designed to help you protect your organisation from cyber threats. If you already have an incident response plan in place, we help you evaluate its efficacy and offer recommendations for improvements. If you’re new to incident response planning, we will work with you to develop your strategy.  

Why us? As one of the few NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) assured service providers for cyber incident exercising, we are uniquely positioned to help you understand and mitigate your cyber risks.

How cyber incident exercising works

  1. Scoping session: In this discussion we get a deep understanding of your organisation, systems and stakeholders to help create a tailored scenario for the cyber incident exercise
  2. Table-top exercise: This exercise involves cyber incident response scenarios specific to your business, role plays, and decision-making in each situation – and can be conducted on-site or remotely with your relevant stakeholders
  3. Management debrief: Following the table-top exercise, we discuss with stakeholders what worked and what can be improved
  4. Formal report: To wrap up the exercise we produce a formal report that provides actionable insights and recommendations for a cyber incident response plan. You’ll also receive a Certificate of Delivery as evidence for regulators and compliance
