Playbook Security is a Software-as-a-Service product that guides organizations through a simulated cyber tabletop exercise.
A scenario is chosen by the exercise Admin who develops exercise objectives that align with the particular scenario they have selected. The Admin also invites tabletop exercise team members that can include resources from technical, operations, legal, public relations, facilities, risk management, internal audit teams, and other relevant internal and external stakeholders.
All individuals participating in the exercise log in to their Playbook Security accounts, and this allows them to see their exercise, which is presented in a series of Prompts (initial information about their particular scenario), Injects (additional information about the scenario that may be directed at the group, a department or individual) and Questions designed to prompt discussion, analysis and concrete actions to address the scenario.
During the exercise, Participants are encouraged to use the collaboration features of the Playbook Security platform to record observations, outstanding questions, gaps in process/policy/technology, and urgent issues.
Following completion of the exercise, Participants will complete an anonymous short survey to gauge their reaction to the exercise, and a group feedback session to record important takeaways.
The exercise Admin will use the information gathered in the group feedback session to record main strengths and opportunities for improvement in an after-action report and improvement plan. This report is created quickly within Playbook's software, and it can be shared internally with relevant stakeholders.
