Defining and testing a cyber incident response plan is a highly effective way of reducing the impact and duration of a real cyber incident. Detect and respond to cyber incidents in line with your organisation’s response plan, based on simulated attacks that use similar technologies to those deployed in real attack scenarios. These simulation exercises are used to determine the pathways that attackers might use, and the depth to which the attackers may be able to access the targeted environments. Evaluate the risk and readiness of your organisation based on plausible cyber attack scenarios. To help prepare, many organisations are testing their incident response (IR) plans and teams with cyber range simulations.
