Tabletop exercises are a critical way to make sure an organization's incident response plan is effective and everyone knows their roles, says Ronald Raether of the law firm Troutman Sanders.

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Legal & Compliance Summit in New York, Raether discusses:

  • How incident response is evolving;
  • The value of tabletop exercises;
  • Common mistakes in creating and testing incident response plans.

Raether leads the cybersecurity, information governance and privacy practice and is a partner in the financial services litigation practice group at Troutman Sanders. He is known as an interpreter between businesses and information technology, and has assisted companies in navigating federal and state privacy laws for over 20 years. Raether's understanding of technology led him to be involved in legal issues that cross law firm boundaries, including experience with data security, data privacy, patents, anti-trust, and licensing and contracts.
