This immersive workshop, held on the 13th March at The Hive, was developed by the South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit and sponsored by Barclays, required business owners/professionals to work in teams managing the cyber security of a fictional organisation, and compete against each other in the process.

Players faced various scenarios based on real life cyber threats, which develop and evolve as the exercise goes on. Participants used their leadership, communication and collaborative expertise to collectively decide how best to protect their company’s reputation, assets and profit.

By the end of the session, participants had learnt how to effectively prioritise different technical, procedural, and physical controls that their organisation can employ to enhance their cyber security.
