Risk Management Tabletop Exercises
Tabletop Exercises are usually the first step in conducting a comprehensive Security Assessment of a facility as the TTX defines process and command structure in the event of an emergency.
What is a tabletop exercise?
The tabletop exercise is a meeting to discuss a simulated emergency. Members of the exercise review and discuss the actions they would take in a particular emergency, testing their emergency plan in an informal, low-stress environment. Tabletop exercises are used to clarify roles and responsibilities and to identify additional campus mitigation and preparedness needs. The exercise should result in action plans for continued improvement of the emergency plan.
