Make Waves With Ocean’s 99™
Can you and fellow participants thwart an attempt to steal three priceless works of art and fend off a crack team of criminal masterminds? Pink Elephant’s Ocean’s 99™ simulation is an exhilarating, interactive workshop where participants are placed in a virtual heist scenario, learning along the way the importance of cyber security and witnessing security processes in action.
Serious game simulations place participants inside a realistic, exciting, virtual world and task them with a series of challenges. It is a risk-free environment, a face-to-face learning arena, and an engaging, interactive classroom where a business or IT concept is brought to life.
Where there is the potential for cybercrime, there needs to be top-notch cyber security. With numerous corporations falling victim to high-profile security breaches, with identity theft becoming a day-to-day occurrence, and with an increasing amount of hackers committing cyber theft and fraud, the need for information security is more crucial than ever.
However, some people don’t take cyber security very seriously, taking the attitude that cybercrime is not something that would happen to them. This highlights how human behaviour and attitudes can pose a serious risk to information security. Employees may not see the need to adhere to their company’s security policy, so won’t realise that cyber criminals will target them specifically for a malicious cyber attack. This lack of awareness and understanding is something that no IT technology solution, no matter how advanced, can withstand.
This fun and dynamic simulation hammers home the importance of protecting all hackable information and assets, and that failing to do so is an unacceptable business risk. Placing participants within a realistic cybercrime scenario will help them to comprehend the importance of cyber security more than if they were to read the same information in a booklet.
Participants will be given a series of challenges and problems, spread across three? rounds in interactive, face-to-face workshops.
They will enter a virtual art world, where priceless objects will be at the mercy of their cyber security skills. The scenario is that the owner of a Tokyo bank is organising an exhibition of three world-famous art objects at the Tokyo Museum. He or she is helped by a team including a transport manager, a security advisor and a project manager. However, a bunch of criminal masterminds called Ocean’s 99 plans to steal the priceless items.
The bank owner and his or her team have to develop an information security policy, perform a risk analysis to identify threats, risks and vulnerabilities, and then execute a strategy for dealing with these risks. The team will transport the art to the Tokyo Museum, but Ocean’s 99 is not to be underestimated. After each round, the team will receive feedback as to how well they protected the objects, and are granted time to make improvements. It is up to them to ensure the heist is thwarted and that the Tokyo bank realises a return on its sponsorship investment.
The simulation will be customised towards participants’ specific learning objectives. But, in general, the main objectives are:
