How do you know if your incident response processes and plans really work?

Very few organisations detect cyber security incidents in a timely manner, and fewer still are able to handle and resolve them in an effective way to minimise impact.


Because when it comes to establishing an incident management and response capability, most organisations limit effort to developing a documented process sufficient to tick the “has an incident response process” box, with little or no regard to how effective the process might actually be.

If this describes your situation then the Incident Handling Tabletop Workshop is for you!

Who should attend

The Incident Handling Tabletop Workshop is eminently suitable for all staff involved in incident handling, no matter at what level.

Real-life simulations provide provide a very engaging format in which new staff get to see first hand the essence of what is involved in good incident response while experienced staff gain fresh insights into their organisation’s preparedness.

Nothing is taken for granted.


Course contents

Featuring a comprehensive set of paper-based exercises, the workshop provides hands-on experience in both detecting and responding to typical real-life incidents.

Participants are provided with a brief introduction that sets the context for the incident, a generic incident handling process and an incident report template. In addition, they are provided with a set of artefacts that include real-world indicators of compromise that they must analyse to identify and respond to a set of incidents.

Participants must then follow the process provided to analyse the information and filter the “noise” from what is meaningful and useful. They will be expected to perform incident handling activities including detection, triage, analysis, containment, eradication and recovery, while communicating and escalating issues to management and relevant stakeholders (represented by the workshop facilitators).

The workshop has been specifically developed to ensure that participants go through all the incident handling steps and do not get stuck in the incident detection phase. The timeline of the workshop is designed to provide participants with hints and prompts to ensure they detect the incidents before the allocated time expires.
