We prepare for fires: We are given advance warning about a fire drill, and when the fire alarm goes off, everyone exits the building. We all know the signs for emergency exits and the location of assembly points where we are expected to gather. But how does your organization react in the event of a cybersecurity incident?

To make sure that in a real cyber emergency no panic ensues, cyber events should be prepared for with exercises. Cyber exercises of varying extent can be carried out in all kinds of companies. At their shortest, they may constitute a session lasting a couple of hours, while at their most extensive, an exercise may be spread over several days and take place in a number of locations.
