Abstract: Due to the strong dependence of companies on their ICT and the high relevance of stable services to remain competitive in the global market, cyber security and resilience play an increasingly important role. However, information security is not only an important issue in the corporate context but also in the societal context. For this reason, nearly all computer science programs at higher education institutions (HEI) incorporate this topic. In this paper, we introduce a table-top cyber security exercise lecture format and the experiences gathered over the last years. The approach is currently used to teach computer science students as well as information security students at two higher education institutions in Austria. Additionally, we briefly highlight how the approach was adapted in order to satisfy the compelling need to teach the course remotely due to Corona restrictions.
