Fortify Your Cyber Resilience: The Impact of Purple Team Tabletop Exercises

In an era where cyberattacks have become an unavoidable reality, organizations are grappling with the constant threat of security breaches. Hitachi Systems Security is at the forefront of combating this challenge with an innovative approach - the Purple Team Tabletop Exercise. This cybersecurity training and testing method redefines how organizations respond to cyber threats and attacks, ensuring a rapid and effective defence strategy.

The Evolution of Cyber Threats

Gone are the days of questioning if an organization will fall victim to a cyberattack; the new reality is when it will happen. With a myriad of attack types and an array of tactics, techniques, and procedures, traditional defences are often scattered and their effectiveness limited. Hitachi Systems Security recognizes the need for a proactive and comprehensive response to these evolving threats.

This fusion involves key members from IT teams, security teams, and business personnel, ensuring a holistic approach to simulating and improving responses to cyber threats and attacks.

Tailored to the client's geographical region and industry, each exercise mirrors real-world threats faced by the organization. The process involves analyzing current cyberattack trends, leveraging real-time threat intelligence, and pinpointing the most likely threat scenarios.
