Oregon State University

We welcome you to the Leadership Tabletop Exercise (LTTX) on the campus of Oregon State University. This exercise aims to engage principal leaders from colleges and universities across Oregon in promoting campus resilience and emergency preparedness. More specifically, this LTTX will focus on cybersecurity resilience by providing leaders the opportunity to receive and share information technology (IT) related information while also identifying risks and vulnerabilities. 

This LTTX will consist of the following three components:

  • A Cyber Threat Brief highlighting the current cyber threat landscape facing higher education in Oregon
  • A Tabletop Exercise (TTX) focused on response and recovery efforts for two different types of cyber incidents
  • An Options for Consideration Briefing summarizing cybersecurity programs, offerings, and assessment opportunities available to higher education

Areas of focus will include Protection, Mitigation, Response and Recovery. Objectives are structured to help leadership develop actionable approaches that bolster the resilience of their campus community, while identifying vulnerabilities that require attention. Two different scenarios will be presented based on real world case studies involving a cyber attack as well as a ransomware attack.
