Cybersecurity Fitness Tracking: Exercise in a Box

Exercise in a Box is an online tool from the NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) which helps organisations test and practise their response to a cyber attack. 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 and as many times as you want. It includes everything you need for setting up, planning, delivery, and post-exercise activity, all in one place.

This iteration of Exercise in a Box has been piloted with small and medium enterprises, local government and the emergency services, but other private and public sector communities could benefit from using it, depending on their needs.
