The number of ransomware and DDoS attacks is constantly increasing and smaller companies and organizations in particular are often ill-prepared. For this target group, the University of Aalen and the Technical Academy in Schwäbisch Gmünd have created the games project BAKGame (BAK stands for threat, analysis, KMU), whose latest free online game “SecurityCards” has now been published.
In it, players take over the management of a fictitious company and decide which security measures are to be used – at the same time, ongoing operations must continue. In order to win the educational game, the “responsible” players must invest in cybersecurity measures such as backups, cybersecurity training, and password policies, while dealing with day-to-day operational obstacles such as supply shortages or machine failures. Occasionally there are cyber attacks that need to be repelled.
iX was able to achieve this score during the test run. Who offers more?
With the help of the game, the fictitious entrepreneurs can develop and try out cybersecurity strategies in a safe environment and check their suitability in stressful situations. It is intended to support medium-sized and smaller companies in taking the right first steps in their own company. The game scenarios are continuously expanded, taking into account the feedback from the players. You can fill out a small questionnaire at the end of the game. “SecurityCards” can be found on the project website.
