With the ongoing prevalence of cyberattacks in the healthcare industry, many organizations struggle to keep up with the ever-changing threat landscape and evolve their security practices accordingly. How can you be sure you’re ready to effectively respond to a significant cyber event, while protecting patients and valuable health data? Our solution: tabletop exercises.
A cybersecurity tabletop exercise is a focused workshop which simulates the cyber threats being faced by an organization to demonstrate what a response would look like in the real world. Specifically, the exercise will test your healthcare organization’s ability to detect, assess, contain, and eradicate a threat based on its existing incident response practices. Our experts prepare the tabletop exercise scenarios ahead of time based on an assessment of current program state, agreed upon goals, relevant threats to the healthcare industry, and the IR playbook(s) to be tested.
