Leadership Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education (LTTX) are half-day events hosted for campus leadership designed to highlight their role in managing institutional risk during emergency incidents. These executive events bring together campus leadership, local, state, and federal officials, and industry subject matter experts to simulate emergencies through tailored case studies on a range of threats.
The date and location of the next LTTX has yet to be determined. More detailed information on the LTTX will be available close to the event.

2018 LTTX North Dakota: Cybersecurity Data Breach
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in coordination with North Dakota University System (NDUS) and Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE), convened a pilot Leadership Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education (LTTX) on Feb. 7, 2018, in Bismarck, North Dakota.
The event brought together the presidents and senior level staff of 11 colleges and universities from across the state of North Dakota as well as five tribal colleges from the state. More than 75 individuals representing the emergency management, cybersecurity, tribal colleges and operational leadership of each institution in the System attended. Participants also included representatives from federal, state, and local departments and agencies that support campus resilience. The event focused on cybersecurity threats to higher education.
The half-day event explored and tested campus resilience and emergency preparedness efforts through an unclassified threat briefing, a series of case studies with immersive discussion questions on leadership’s role during an incident, and an in-depth discussion of options for leadership to consider in building campus resilience.
