Applying the principles delineated in these three posts might be easy to achieve with a small team, but, when running Incident Response (IR) Tabletop Exercises (TTEs) for large organizations spread across continents and with thousands of employees, scaling up might seem insurmountable.
As a result, large organizations may opt to run smaller scale IR TTEs by limiting them to office or even regional scale, but typically shirk away from running full-scale TTEs.
Large-scale IR TTE scenarios must therefore take into account the detection of lateral escalation across continents, environments, and infrastructures.
This means that meaningful IR TTEs should ideally be run at scale.
TrustPeers platform enables large organizations to access all these capabilities. Contact a TrustPeers’ specialist to get advice on how to run a large-scale IR TTE with minimal organization requirements and maximum efficiency and results’ transparency.

Incident response tabletop exercises are designed to increase the response teams’ preparedness. As far as preparedness is concerned, a cyber incident response tabletop exercise is to cybersecurity what a fire drill is to firemen.
An incident response tabletop exercise program should be a holistic one involving all parties potentially affected and covering all aspects of every potential incident in maximum detail. Yet, that lofty goal is not always an applicable option, so there are intermediate approaches to consider.
The main goals of any Incident Response (IR) tabletop exercise are to minimize MTTR (Mean Time to Resolution) and increase the IR team members’ level of preparedness. When planning an online tabletop exercise, there are a few things to keep in mind to organize it optimally and reap maximal results.
