Free workshops to strengthen your cyber security and resilience - register now!

Exercise in a Box is an online tool from the National Cyber Security Centre which helps organisations test and practise their response to a cyber-attack.

We all know that exercising brings great benefits for our health and wellbeing - but how would you apply this concept to your workplace?

The National Cyber Security Centre has partnered with the Scottish Business Resilience Centre to turn that concept into reality. To improve the fitness of organisations to face the evolving cyber threats out there, it commissioned a new, quick and easy to use, tool called 'Exercise in a Box'.

'Exercise in a Box' provides you with a number of scenarios, based on common cyber threats, which your organisation can practice as many times as you want (a process known as 'exercising'). All in one place! Plus, there is a wealth of information and support.

It is completely free, and you don’t have to be an expert to use it. The service provides exercises, based around the main cyber threats, which your organisation can do in your own time, in a safe environment, as many times as you want. It includes everything you need for setting up, planning, delivery, and post-exercise activity, all in one place.

Large or small, private sector or public sector, getting your organisation to practise what happens in a cyber attack helps you to spot the gaps in your fitness regime and shows where you might need to change up a gear.
