Tabletop Exercise (TTX)

OpenSSF will be organizing a Tabletop Exercise (TTX) as part of the SOSS Community Day. The goal is to improve incident response overall by:

  • Offering a comprehensive TTX template/formula for maintainers, contributors, and open source consumers to enhance incident response capabilities and overall security posture.
  • Providing educational content for developers who are in the process of learning about security practices. 
  • Showcasing the practical applications of current OpenSSF technologies in the context of a security incident. 
  • Identifying opportunities for refining existing processes and technologies, as well as exploring the development of new ones that can bolster incident response efforts.

See you in Seattle! 

We look forward to welcoming you to the vibrant city of Seattle for a day filled with knowledge-sharing, networking, and collaborative discussions on Securing Open Source Software. Save the date and stay tuned for further updates as we curate an agenda that promises to inspire and empower our community.
