Tabletop exercises (TTXs) are a useful tool for testing and building response skills and plans to prepare for a cybersecurity incident before it happens. NRECA will host a live, facilitated online tabletop exercise (TTX) designed specifically to address cooperative communications during a cyber incident response—from determining your internal points of contact and when to communicate with them, to exploring the options for reaching out to your members regarding the cyber incident. Conducted in collaboration with Norwich University Applied Research Institutes (NUARI), this 4-hour online TTX will utilize NUARI’S DECIDE® platform to simulate a realistic cyber incident and test your system’s communication response.

Registration Closes: October 27, 2023
