Security tabletop exercises enable organizations to analyze potential emergency situations in an informal environment, and are designed to foster constructive discussions among participants as they examine existing operational plans and determine where improvements can be made.
Tabletop testing generally takes the form of a discussion-based exercise and involves reviewing roles, responsibilities and the efforts required to respond to a given security incident.
The major benefit of using these types of exercises is that they provide real scenarios in a non-threatening, non-disruptive format.
TIPS: Take time to prepare for the exercise; involve multiple parties from throughout the organization; make sure all participants know the ground rules; make the scenario as real as possible.

Security and compliance are first and foremost in the management of our clients' systems. After conducting thousands of SRAs, common vulnerabilities began to emerge. We launched HIPAA Tip Tuesday to make clients aware of what actions they can take to address these vulnerabilities.

Have a great week!
