Game of Threats™

Cyber Threat Simulation


Game of Threats™ is a digital game that simulates the speed and complexity of a real-world cyber breach to help executives better understand the steps they can take to protect their companies. The game environment creates a realistic experience where both sides – the company and the attacker, are required to make quick, high impact decisions with minimal information.

PwC’s Cybersecurity experts coach players through realistic scenarios with different types of threat actors and their preferred methodologies, and explain what they can do to better prevent, detect and respond to an attack.
