Serious cyber games

Perfect your cyber decision making in a fun and effective way



Cyber security education doesn’t have to be a slideshow

Cyber security is not an easy topic to understand particularly if it’s not your day job. All too often attempts to teach it are overly technical and quickly forgotten - research shows up to 90% of information in one month. This leads to poor understanding and wastes valuable training budgets.

Our cyber games give you the context you need to understand the fundamentals of cyber security. This will let you make effective decisions and investments. They’re also a memorable and enjoyable way to learn that makes best use of your training budget.

About our games

We currently only offer 1 game. It both creates an immersive experience and gives players an understanding of how cyber security works that they will remember. The game can be used on its own or as part of a wider cyber security programme.

Developed by DSTL, it puts you in the role of a nation state delivering offensive cyber operations. It demonstrates how attacks work and focuses on balancing resources, risk, and reward to achieve an objective. We find this is incredibly effective for creating understanding of cyber threats and attacks for those defending an organisation.

Originally conceived as a physical board game, during the drive to remote working created by COVID-19 we have created an online version to allow remote facilitated play, or potentially even facilitate the game yourself. The screenshot to the right shows the user interface.

Our game sessions are facilitated allowing you to fully focus on the game. Our facilitators have world class experience of cyber operations and exercises. This lets them initiate and mediate discussions, and so maximise your understanding and context of the issues.
