Game of Threats™

Are you adequately prepared to respond to cyber threats?

Game of Threats™ offers a unique way to educate and raise awareness of cybersecurity.

Educating the board about cybersecurity threats

In our fast-moving, interconnected world, cyber risks are growing and business leaders need to identify and protect what’s most crucial to their organisations.

A firm’s cybersecurity strategy should be led from the top; it’s crucial that board members understand and prepare for attacks.

The board might recognise the reputational, financial and regulatory impacts of a cybersecurity breach on their business, but do they know how to prepare for a cyber incident, understand where the threat might come from and how to respond in the face of a potentially high-profile attack?

PwC's Game of Threats™ offers a unique way to educate and raise awareness of cybersecurity – allowing you to experience the key decisions you need to make during a cyberattack.
