ISSA War Game Exercise

To promote education and preparedness in the community, security, technology, and management professionals are invited to participate in a cybersecurity war game exercise. All resources and materials used during the exercise will be provided to attendees to bring back to their organization to launch a program for conducting cybersecurity war game exercises internally.

  • On the stage will be participants with tech and management experience who will play various roles at a fictional company, and they will be led through a narrative series of events that result in a cybersecurity breach.
  • Members of the audience will be given a dossier on their role as a customer or investor of the fictional company when they arrive, and they will submit feedback to the fictional company via their mobile device. Winning submissions as determined by audience vote will be used within the exercise, and prizes will be issued to select submitters.
  • As a tabletop, there are no live systems, instead it’s like a D&D game with hackers and techies instead of dragons and wizards, supplemented with synthesized policies and logs from the fictional systems projected for everyone to see.
  • After the event, there will be a panel of experts who will conduct a “hot wash” de-brief, analyzing how well the participants performed, and to what extent our exercise accomplished its objectives.
  • Last year’s event received lots of positive feedback and drew attendees from as far as the SF Bay Area, and the voting system we used ranked it among the top 10% most interactive events in North America in 2018!
