10 Benefits of Running Cybersecurity Exercises

  • Cybersecurity exercises are useful simulations of specific cyber attack scenarios that enable organizations to gain valuable insights into their real-world response.
  • Despite their importance, 74% of respondents to the ISF Benchmark stated that they do not subject critical systems under development to cyber attack simulations or exercises.
