PwC are delighted to invite you to a presentation and demonstration of Game of Threats. Game of Threats is PwC’s proprietary, interactive game that simulates a cyber breach from the perspectives of both a threat actor and the leadership of a company. Game of Threats™ simulates the experience that executives must go through in the midst of a cyber-breach. Using scenario based insights, players are educated on cybersecurity issues and threats that are a critical component of today’s corporate landscape from a variety of perspectives.

During the session PwC’s cybersecurity experts coach players through realistic cyber attack scenario to teach players about what they can do to better prepare, respond, and remediate an attack and familiarizes them with different types of threat actors and their preferred methodologies. Players walk away with a better understanding of the steps they need to take to better secure their companies.

Key takeaways from the session which are particularly relevant to In-house Counsel include:

  1. Identify Threat Actors targeting their company, and the attack strategies they use (How does a criminal attack differ from a hacker attack?)
  2. Explore how secure their company is against these Threat Actors (What is their level of risk for a breach? How quickly would they detect a breach?)
  3. Recognize the reputational, financial and regulatory impacts of cyber attacks and breach response. (At what stage should Legal be involved, and which response is the right one for the business environment?)
  4. Understand the potential ramifications and remediation options after an attack (How quickly would they be able to respond to a breach? How can Legal be engaged early on?)
  5. Understand what can be done to prevent an attack (How does having the right infrastructure and team in place impact the outcome of a breach?)
  6. Learn key cybersecurity trends and terminology (What are the newest attacks occurring in my sector and how are other companies responding?)
