Description

Cyber War Games with a Christmas Twist

We put you in the hot seat of a company suffering a sustained cyber-attack. Under pressure, you explore the options as you respond and seek to stabilise the situation. Everything is at stake. What happens next is up to you!

This isn't your standard 'Chalk & Talk' type event; this gives you experience and insight so that when the time comes, your organisation is ready with the right people making the right choices that deliver the right outcome.

"Marley & Co was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The proposal to strike off was signed by the finance director, the operations director and the MD.

Sarah Crooge signed it. And Sarah Crooge's name was good upon 'Change for anything she chose to put her hand to. Old Marley & Co was as dead as a doornail."

Well, that was several weeks after Christmas 2017 at least.

We transport you to a time but a week before Christmas 2017 when Marley & Co are at their busiest time of year preparing the distribution of orders from a major international toy manufacturer. All was running smoothly as clockwork (as per usual) and it looked to be another smooth Christmas.

There was that festive buzz in the air, Christmas Carols crackling out of the old PA system and the staff, whilst working hard as ever, were secretly planning the route around the shops to spend that hard-earned Christmas bonus. That was, until the phone went.... "Sarah, I think we've been hacked... what do we do?"

It is now up to It is up to you to decide the company's fate and that of its employees. Could it have been different... could Marley & Co still be the most profitable logistics company trading in Suffolk, nay East Anglia? Only by you navigating through the impending Cyber Security Crisis will we know for certain.

Workshop content and format

This Cyber War Game is delivered by Andrew Tillman and Alan Pawsey, founders of PlayDontLose

The exercise is based on our 'Pathfinder' game with a twist of Christmas and will be lively, interactive and informative. Working in small groups, participants will walk away with a clear Action Plan, an enhanced understanding of their cyber risks and increased confidence in managing a cybersecurity incident and crisis.

Who Should Attend

This Cyber War Game is geared to Directors and Senior Managers who will be expected to apply their leadership during a crisis in their own organisation.

The main vehicle for delivery will be a case study based on a fictional company that experiences an escalating cybersecurity event and how that impacts upon the whole business.

We appreciate that there will be a lot happening during this high-pressure event and you will not remember it all. For that reason, you will have access to a WhatsApp group for 5 business days after the event and put us in the hot seat!
