Table Top Exercises

What are Table Top Exercises (TTEs)? 

Tabletop exercises are interactive, engaging, and dynamic sessions to help you clarify roles & responsibilities, improve problem-solving and decision-making, and enhance collaboration during cyber attacks. Thrive with EQ focuses on helping you engage and lead your teams during times of disruption and high-stress environments. 


What makes your TTEs unique?

One of the greatest misconceptions about cyber is that it is purely Information Technology related. With an increase of 600% in cybercrime since COVID-2019, of which 96% are based on manipulation of human vulnerabilities, and with over 78% of remote workers worldwide costing the global economy an estimated 1 Trillion USD cost in 2020. We focus on exercising all the non-IT elements of a cyber attack and help you build cyber preparedness and resilience through collaborative leadership. 

What do you exercise during a TTEs?

Our TTEs are designed based on the specific client’s desired outcomes and requirements to ensure the simulations provide a realistic experience. During the cyber crisis simulations, and as agreed with the client, we offer various collaborative leadership modules, which you can view here. We use a dedicated Microsoft SharePoint client portal with secure cloud-based solutions and advanced cyber threat protection. 


How do you deliver the TTEs?

Thrive with EQ’s TTEs can be organized both in a virtual environment or in person. The client can choose the desired platform we deliver online TTEs on Microsoft TeamsCisco Webex TrainingZoom. Every TTE includes a Microsoft client SharePoint portal, which covers the full information management life cycle of collaboration with our clients. 

TTE Objectives

TTE Teams

Our TTEs include exercising collaboration between Stakeholders, Senior Leadership, Management Teams and Staff.

Stakeholders which can include your customers, board of directors or steering committee, suppliers and/or contractors, and public opinion.

Senior Leadership is the decision-making body of your organization which can include the Chief Executive Officer (CEO)/General Manager, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Chief Information Officer (CISO) Directors, Spokesperson, Legal Advisor and Chief Financial Officer.

Management Teams are the head of your organizational units and can include your IT Team, Security (Physical), Business Development, Communications & Media and Human Resources.

Staff includes all cross-functional teams and employees of your workforce.

World Savings Banking Institute (WSBI) and Global Cyber Alliance joined forces and organized a series of webinars on “Cyber Transformation: From Strategy to Operations”. Thrive with EQ led the regional training webinars for our members in Latin America, Africa, Asia and Central Europe. The CEO, Nadja El Fertasi, facilitated transformative, innovative and dynamic online training which focused on exercising collaboration during a simulated cyber crisis. Our members learned new ways of approaching stress management, problem-solving, decision making while navigating a disruptive cyber event. Nadja’s work ethic while looking for excellence, coupled with a good sense of humor, enabled us to approach our customer needs best, while working in flexible and convivial manner. I certainly recommend Thrive with EQ’s Table Top Exercises for any organization who is looking to exercise collaboration and be prepared against the inevitable cyber disruptions of the digital age.
