CISA Elections Cyber Tabletop Exercises (TTX) and other TTX Packages

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Tabletop Exercise Packages (CTEPs) are tools to help stakeholders prepare for, prevent, and help plan incident responses to a wide range of potential scenarios that could arise. CISA created the Elections Cyber Tabletop Exercise Package (ECTEP) Situation Manual (SitMan) as part of a strategic effort to increase election stakeholder cyber exercise capabilities and preparedness.
