Retrospect Labs is a specialist cyber security startup focused on helping organisations improve their cyber security posture and resilience through realistic cyber exercises. Our team consists of former Australian Government incident responders and cyber security specialists who have significant hands-on experience in responding to major incidents impacting some of Australia's most critical networks. We draw from our unique experiences in incident response and cyber security to construct meaningful and valuable exercises that have immense and actionable value to those participating. Our key point of difference is not only our experience in the field, but also our heavy investment in developing technologies that enable organisations to benefit from these valuable exercises more frequently with significantly lower resources required.
Exercises are currently beyond the reach of many organisations in Australia and globally - they required significant resources and expertise to design and deliver a meaningful exercise. This burden is reflected in the exercise guidance developed by the National Institute of Standards and technology where they state that exercises requires months of design, planning, and other activities to conduct one exercise. From our experience conducting manual exercises with many organisations, this is an accurate statement. To solve this problem, we are developing a cyber security exercise platform that significantly removes the burden in designing, conducting, and evaluating exercises. By removing these burdens, organisations can conduct exercises more frequently and incrementally build their readiness against a variety of incident types such as ransomware and data breaches.
