(Full disclosure, clever title, but not mine)

One of the challenges for the Chief Security Officer is convincing his or her executives of the unpredictable and potentially catastrophic nature of cyber attacks directed against the organization. The rules are constantly changing and many attacks are invisible to the CSO until some real damage has already occurred. During the PwC analyst day in Boston on Oct 28, I participated in a "gamified" demonstration of an experience that simulated a cyber attack, with one participant playing the role of the hacker, and the other, me in this case, responding as the CSO. The demonstration was eye-opening, and made the normally conceptual event more real and thought-provoking.
