Practice your skills in an engaging, team-based environment to improve your cyber security executive decision making proficiency. Cyber42 is a realistic leadership simulation with applicable and discussion-based outcomes. Leave with a confidence boast in a key skill senior leaders seek from their CISOs: nimble decision making.

With enterprises in need of protecting against an endless and increasing onslaught of information security threats, technology management skills alone are no longer sufficient. Today it is about technology, business strategy, and people. Cybersecurity leaders need to be up to speed on information security issues from a technical standpoint, understand how to implement security planning into the broader business objectives, and be able to build a longer lasting security and risk-based culture. Adjusting employees’ and leadership’s way of thinking about security in order to prioritize and act to prevent today’s most common cybersecurity attacks requires organizational change that affects the foundational culture of the organization.

Cyber42 is a leadership simulation game that puts you in the driver’s seat of making tough executive calls on behalf a fictitious organization that needs your expertise. Each outcome will be followed by thoughtfully crafted group discussion. The winning team will be decided by who makes the strongest security cultural impact to the fictitious organization.
