Simulation game – OCEAN’s 99

A CyberSecurity Business Simulation

Course Overview

Cyber Security – Resilience What’s happening in the Cyber Security world? A report from an international Cyber Security Protection Alliance concluded that organizations do not have enough awareness and knowledge about Cyber Security revealing a need for ‘more information and education’. An ISACA report ‘2015 global Cyber Security status report’ revealed that only 38% of organizations said their organizations were prepared for sophisticated cyber attacks. Is it any wonder that the latest trends report from the Society of Information management reveal that ‘Security’ is a top scoring issue for CIO’s?

This has prompted an explosion in Cyber Security education, certification and training with ‘Resilia’ being the latest offering provided by Axelos. However, despite the investment in knowledge and skills it is the attitude and disciplined behavior of people that pose a significant risk. The latest Cyber Security findings from Cisco also reveal that attackers are shifting their emphasis from ‘…seeking to compromise servers and operating systems to seeking to exploit users ’ (behavior).

Ocean’s 99 is our latest business simulation game that aims to support Cyber Security awareness and training programs – helping to change attitude and behavior.

Target Audience

This simulation is targeted to the following groups of 8-12 participants

Structure of the simulation

Introduction :

The specific learning objectives for your organization will first be introduced. The team members will familiarize themselves with the materials and roles in order to identify who they are during the simulation. Each of the participants will be given a role and a set of responsibilities. The key players are: Bank of Tokyo, Tokyo Museum, Security Officer, Project Manager, IT Support, Transport Manager and the owners of the objects from the Amsterdam Museum, London Museum and Las Vegas.

Security Policy and Risk Assessment :

The team will start with an exercise to define the Security Policy of this organization. Together they will agree on strategy, roles & responsibilities and processes. They will also define the key assets they want to protect.

Awareness session :

When the design work has been completed the team members will prepare themselves for the next phase of the simulation. They must decide what should be part of the awareness campaign and how to organize this.

Moving objects from the museum to the local airport:

This is the first round of the simulation in which we will test the team’s design. The team has to move the objects to the local airport. During this round the team will receive a series of realistic Cyber Security events which they must both recognize and deal with.

Reflection and improvement :

After this first game round the team will capture lessons learned. We will reflect on the 4 P’s. An example of reflection items: PEOPLE, PROCESS,PRODUCT,PARTNER

Moving the objects from Tokyo Airport to the Tokyo Museum:

This is the final round. Again the team will receive a series of events and incidents based on the current security level after having made their improvements and investments in new countermeasures. Then we will hopefully celebrate the opening of the exhibition.

Closure and Lessons Learned:

The simulation will finish with lessons learned and actions for the day to day work.
