About Our Cybersecurity Tabletop Practice

Law & Forensics works closely with executive leadership teams to craft customized cybersecurity tabletops that mirror the organization’s business environment, regulatory and compliance obligations, IT infrastructure, and corporate culture. We know that each organization is unique and that a one-size-fits-all type of cybersecurity tabletop simply does not work.

Our custom-built cybersecurity tabletops not only are engaging, but they aim to identify gaps in organizations’ existing compliance and regulatory obligations, cybersecurity posture, shortcomings with cyber insurance, deficiencies with existing cyber training, and cement the organization’s cyber strategy.
Law & Forensics’ tabletops serve as a first step towards identifying risks that could potentially have a significant impact on organizations if left unattended to.
