To assist stakeholders in examining their cybersecurity and physical security plans and capabilities, CISA provides end-to-end exercise planning and conduct support, including planning meetings, document and scenario development, facilitation, and after-action report development. CISA uses the Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) methodology in the design, development, and execution of exercises. HSEEP uses a common methodology across all mission areas to ensure maximum integration with all Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and external stakeholders.
Example Exercise Scenarios
