Game of Threats | PwC

A new way to get cyber ready

When it comes to cyber security incidents, there are a number of organisations out there that when faced with such a threat – panic and then make poor decisions – which impacts their brand and customer trust. It’s the high pressure environment that can counteract planned responses to an attack disrupting cybersecurity resources. It’s important to understand how well prepared you are for a cyber-attack but just as important is the need to be confident with how your teams would react to an incident in a stressful, dynamic situation.

That’s why PwC has launched Game of Threats™ in Australia with senior executives from multiple industries who are getting cyber ready through a digital simulation experience.

Game of ThreatsTM is PwC’s proprietary, interactive game that simulates a cyber breach from the perspectives of a threat actor and a company.

Leveraging the interactive game platform, our facilitators work with organisations to plan and deliver multiple cyber attack simulations with the goal of increasing cybersecurity awareness, fostering collaboration between business units and technology teams, and improving organisation’s strategic response to cyber threats.

During this workshop, participants will be challenged to make quick, high-impact decisions in an effort to simulate the pressure and intensity of decision-making in the midst of a cyber breach and to assess readiness to understand, respond to and defend against cyber threats.
