ECHO: Publication of ‘Success Factors for Designing a Cybersecurity Exercise on the Example of Incident Response’ (2021)

Within the context of the ECHO pilot project (European network of Cybersecurity centres and competence Hub for Innovation and Operations), Enquirya worked in collaboration with Taltech (Tallin University of Technology) on an article that has been presented during the 2021 IEEE European Symposium on Security and Privacy Workshops (EuroS&PW) in conjunction with the CACOE ‘21 (Workshop on cyber range technologies and applications).

The article Success Factors for Designing a Cybersecurity Exercise on the Example of Incident Response (2021) – written by Sten Mäses (Taltech), Kaie Maennel (Taltech), Mascia Toussaint (ENQ) and Veronica Rosa (ENQ) – aimed at providing the readers with a framework of key indicators for cybersecurity exercise organisation evaluation, on the example of incident response. This study combines practical experience with crisis management and cybersecurity exercises knowledge in a 10-step guide for successfully designing CSXs.  

In addition, the Success Factors for Designing a Cybersecurity Exercise on the Example of Incident Response (2021) paper includes a checklist that presents all the actionable indicators that should be taken into account when designing a cyber exercise; this checklist can be applied to different types of exercises as it can be easily adjusted to each specific context.
