How to Run a Cyber War…Game

| Apr. 22, 2018

The Cipher Brief hosted its second annual threat conference at beautiful Cloister Resort on Sea Island, Ga., this month.

Because the sessions were entirely off-the-record, I won’t discuss how specific participants reacted and what they recommended, but rather I will reflect on what lessons can be learned from these types of exercises and how The Cipher Brief’s can be a model for others.
