When conducting incident response tabletop exercises, avoiding certain pitfalls is crucial to success.
Ransomware and other threats can affect any size organization across all industries. In an effort to mature incident response (IR) and business resiliency processes, organizations are executing more granular and targeted incident response tabletop exercises. These simulations help organizations to practice response and recovery steps in a controlled environment with minimal business disruptions.
While these exercises can yield many benefits, they also can be rendered largely unsuccessful or useless if specific requirements aren’t in place. By identifying the most common pitfalls when conducting tabletop exercises and also pinpointing solutions, organizations can be better prepared to handle ransomware attacks and other threats.
