Exercise in a Box is an online tool which helps organisations find out how resilient they are to cyber attacks and practice their response in a safe environment. 

The service provides exercised, 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, deliver, and post-exercise activity all in one place.

The 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.
