Feedback form is now closed.
To promote education and preparedness in the community, the Capitol of Texas chapter of the ISSA invites security, technology, and management professionals to participate in a cybersecurity war game exercise at the InnoTech Conference on Tue Oct 2 at the Austin Convention Center. All resources and materials used during the exercise will be provided to attendees to bring back to their organization to launch a program for conducting cybersecurity war game exercises internally.
  • On the stage will be participants with tech and management experience who will play various roles at a fictional company, and they will be led through a narrative series of events that result in a cybersecurity breach.
  • Attendees will be given a dossier on their role as a customer or investor of the fictional company when they arrive, and they can submit feedback to the fictional company via their mobile device. Winning submissions as determined by audience vote will be used within the exercise. 
  • As a tabletop, there are no live systems, instead it's like a D&D game with hackers and techies instead of dragons and wizards, supplemented with synthesized policies and logs from the fictional systems projected for everyone to see.
  • After the event, there will be a panel of cybersecurity experts who will conduct a "hot wash" de-brief, analyzing how well the participants performed, and to what extent our exercise accomplished its objectives.
If you would like to interact with the participants and have an opportunity to win prizes, don't forget to bring a charged mobile device.
