Mini Table-Top Exercise

‘No two attacks are the same, when it comes to incident response there are no perfect answers – but some are definitely better than others! In this session we will be guided through a “choose your own adventure” table-top exercise. How your team organises and responds is up to the collective wisdom of your team. Only time will tell who will prevail or perish. After our adventure is completed, we will gather and share the lessons learned.’
