Planning service
How the planning service works
We help clients to identify user needs and business requirements as part of their crisis preparedness and to put in place plans, protocols and software as needed to ensure they have a viable crisis plan. We help train and test teams against this plan, and provide follow-up support as needed.

We work transparently and in an agile way with clients so you can follow progress and reprioritise work as the requirements become clearer. We are tool and provider agnostic, so provide independent advice rooted in user needs and an understanding of the wider landscape you operate in.
Planning service works with specific services


Training service provided
How the training service works
We train client teams to put their cyber crisis and incident management plans into practice in a safe training environment as part of team-based simulations, workshops or crisis drills. These include training on the software elements of their crisis protocols, and use of a simulation environment to rehearse the implementation of crisis communication and crisis management plans.

These include:

Crisis90: a workshop format to walk through a scenario phase-by-phase and apply theory in a practical context, to help teams learn and implement their crisis management protocols and learn from each other.

Social Simulator: an immersive simulation environment to recreate real-world pressure in a crisis situation, so teams can rehearse their response behind closed doors across replicas of email, collaboration tools, website and social media channels.
