Tabletop Exercise

1 min read


The Tabletop Exercise evaluates your organization’s cyber crisis processes, tools and proficiency in responding to cyber attacks from both an executive strategic and technical incident response perspective. During each exercise, Mandiant consultants introduce multiple scenario injects based on real-world experience in a roundtable environment to observe the organization’s simulated actions and decisions in response.

Before beginning a tabletop exercise, Mandiant experts first develop an understanding the client organization’s threat profile, operational environment and specific areas of concern. We conduct an on-site workshop with key individuals, and introduce evolving scenario injects based on attacker behavior, techniques and tactics observed during our incident response work.


  • Identify gaps between documented and expected responses in comparison to what actually happens.
  • Recommendations based on realworld incident response best practices.
