Among emergency responders, including in the realm of cyber, tabletop exercises are widely accepted as a reliable training activity for preparing for the inevitable incident. Drilling response scenarios via discussion-based, classroom-style exercises offers a multitude of benefits, including ensuring roles and responsibilities are understood and forcing participants to sharpen their critical thinking during the fluidity of an evolving event.
