Was there an obstacle or hesitation that would have prevented you from buying facilitation of Exercise in a Box?
Budget is certainly always an obstacle, but we felt the service was excellent value for money and competitive. There is always a reservation that any training won’t be engaging.

How did you find the running of the exercise?
The pre-site visit arrangements went smoothly, and the logistics worked well. The telephone conversation a couple of weeks before the event to finalise arrangements was beneficial.

What did you like most?
The consultant was very experienced in cyber security and was able to communicate to different audiences.

What else did you find useful about the exercise?
It was a very useful exercise to get a snapshot of our maturity of how to respond to security events.
It has provided a motivation to continue to address improving our incident response process.
It has helped raised awareness within the organisation of cyber threats and our need to be able to respond to them.

Would you recommend this service? If so, why?
I would recommend this service. Although material is available for organisations to conduct their own incident response exercises, the value is diminished if it cannot be facilitated by someone who can engage and interact with the customers. Clear Cut Cyber was able to clearly explain the scenarios, and in the context of our organisation and the threats that apply to us.

How did you find the bespoke cyber exercise?
The cyber exercise did more than I was expecting it to do which was obviously a very positive thing. It had an awareness and training element to it for the wider team who were involved and for me that was massively valuable.

What did you like the most about it?
I think it was the involvement of the wider team and the emphasis on the wider business that was really useful. The team really enjoyed it for a number of reasons; team building exercise, something out of the normal routine, and involving them in areas that they wouldn’t normally get involved with. It was also educational for them and it made them think in a way that they wouldn’t normally day-to-day.

How did you find the post exercise report?
The comprehensive write up has been a really useful tool for our future planning. We've identified plenty of areas for improvement for the business that we’ve fed into the risk assessment process and also our cyber security roadmap. It’s really set us on the road to improvement for the business which was useful.

Would you recommend the service?
Yes - I’d certainly recommend it and I’d like to use the service again as well which is an endorsement in itself. Previously I was going to be delivering this kind of event myself and running through some scenarios - but I just haven’t got the capability to do that basically and even having seen one delivered I wouldn’t be able to go and do one now for another office. So I think the expertise of Clear Cut Cyber and the way you steered the conversations and your understanding of the business was a huge benefit.
