“Now our team can continuously train and benchmark our progress, learning from the Red Canary team who respond to real-world threats daily. It gives me confidence knowing that we’re better prepared for the next threat that comes our way.””

Practice real-world scenarios

Scenarios are inspired by threat intelligence and adversary research from the millions of investigations we conduct annually. This expertise is mapped to industry-standard frameworks, such as NIST and MITRE ATT&CK®, to ensure teams practice the most critical scenarios, including those ripped from the latest headlines.

Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to training, Readiness Exercises bring together training, tabletop exercises, and atomic tests in one experience that is run in your environment. This contextualizes the lessons to maximize their relevance and impact.

Stay ahead of adversaries with continuous training

The best teams in the world all share a common trait – they are always practicing to improve their skills to ensure they are ready for anything that comes their way. However, training cybersecurity teams effectively can take a lot of work. Getting the team together can be challenging, and when training does occur, it is difficult to engage participants and measure their effectiveness.

This is why Readiness Exercises leverages a continuous learning approach. Practices occur on a frequent weekly or monthly basis instead of annually. Whether conducted internally or facilitated by Red Canary experts, they engage participants and ensure that lessons stick, so you will be ready when an actual incident occurs. Built-in reporting and scoring measure how maturity is improving and where to focus to get even better.

Continuously improve your cybersecurity readiness

Benchmark current skill levels against industry standards through frequent feedback and scoring. Onboard new team members and establish a culture of ongoing skill improvement.

Train for real-world threats

Continuously practice and validate team preparedness against realistic scenarios based on trending adversary groups, tools, and MITRE ATT&CK® techniques.

Team members participate in interactive on-demand exercises that test their knowledge response skills.


Users are scored and receive a response maturity level.


Built-in retrospectives conducted by your team or Red Canary facilitators assess your readiness and maturity and generate action items to improve preparedness.


Reports can be exported and used as proof of completion.


Continuous learning is more engaging and effective

Continuous training with feedback and scoring captures the interest of participants and ensure lessons are retained. Exercise can be conducted internally or facilitated by Red Canary.

Based on real-world scenarios

Training content is informed by Red Canary’s leading threat intelligence and adversary research from our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution that conducts millions of investigations annually, and combined with industry-standard frameworks like NIST and MITRE ATT&CK®.

Designed for your team

Train inside your environment to maximize the relevance of exercises, rather than running generic simulations or courses.

“Just having an incident response plan and a set of playbooks is no longer enough. That plan and those playbooks must be put to the test regularly and refined to keep up with evolving threats.”
