Following a 2016 IDA survey of organizations involved in cybersecurity developmental test and
evaluation, staff from several divisions of IDA’s Systems and Analyses Center have been collaborating
with sponsors, test teams, and others to begin to fill some of the gaps the survey identified. The focus of
these collaborations has been on research to inform policy and guidance, technical analysis in support of
programs, and support to cybersecurity test teams. One of several initiatives that have evolved from these
efforts is advancing the practice of cyber tabletop (CTT) exercises.
