Download the briefing paper excerpt

Cyber attacks are commonplace today and as a result, preparedness and resiliency are paramount to protecting information.

Performing cyber security exercises can help organisations improve their ability to detect, investigate and respond to cyber attacks in a timely and effective manner. These exercises can identify areas of improvement across people, process and technology, reducing the impact should a real cyber-attack occur.

The ISF’s briefing paper Delivering an Effective Cyber Security Exercise provides a structured approach for exercise controllers and facilitators to prepare, run and follow-up cyber security exercises. This briefing paper is supported by the following:

  • Cybersecurity Exercise Planner
  • Cyber Attack Scenario Builder
