Immersive Incident Response Simulation Game

Challenge Your Team, Secure Your Future.

Foster collaboration and communication while strengthening your team’s security mindset as they traverse real-world breach scenarios.

Service Context

What would you do in a breach? What would your team do in a breach? Our incident response simulation game immerses players in various breach scenarios, putting them in the hot seat to make the decisions that will see their fictitious company sink or swim. Giving employees insight into how a real breach can play out and insights into the tough decisions that have to be made leaves them with lasting contextual awareness of how their actions can affect recovery efforts and foster a culture of security within the organisation.

Why Cyber Alchemy?

All of Cyber Alchemy’s training team have backgrounds delivering security training in world-class universities and organisations, so we have pedagogical blood running through us. As well as knowing at least one big word, our training team are practitioners, having delivered high-quality security assessments and consultancy to our clients for years.

Our training team secures clients big and small from a wide gamut of threats, solving complex problems to ensure our clients remain secure. Furthermore, all of the team have responded to incidents for our clients, bringing real-world experience with them into every session.

We’re a people-first company. While we might own hacker standard-issue black hoodies and sit on the computer all day, that’s far from all we do. We love getting out and about to preach what we practice in a fun and engaging way, delivering memorable and valuable sessions for all that attend.


Our Approach

Our incident response simulation game is designed to accommodate different roles and backgrounds across an organisation. When planning the session, we will ask about the attendee’s roles and the organisation’s objectives before agreeing on an approach and timescales.

Our incident response simulation game is typically delivered in person, but we can deliver the course virtually if this is better. Our trainers are skilled at delivering engaging and dynamic sessions that captivate participants from start to finish. The high-level plan for the game is as follows:

  1. Attendees are divided into teams, with each member assuming a unique role. Together, you’ll face the challenge of allocating a budget to acquire defensive countermeasures. Will you invest in cutting-edge anti-virus systems, secure backups, or enlist the guidance of cyber security consultancy services? The choice is yours.
  2. Brace yourselves for simulated cyber security incidents that mirror real-world breach scenarios. Navigate through critical decision points, covering the complete timeline of an actual incident. From initial discovery to resuming normal business operations, your investments and choices will determine success or failure, potentially impacting the financial stability of your company
  3. As the breach scenarios unfold, teams will be scored interactively, evaluating their performance and resilience. Each decision matters, bringing you closer to victory or defeat. Only the most astute and resourceful teams will emerge as overall winners, earning the prestigious title of successful incident responders.

During the sessions, we emphasise real-world examples and practical application, allowing participants to grasp concepts easily and understand how they relate to their specific roles and responsibilities. We encourage a dynamic learning environment with questions, discussions, and knowledge sharing among participants.

Our cyber awareness courses can be delivered virtually or in person, giving flexible options to minimise disruption and maximise value. Our trainers are skilled at delivering engaging and dynamic training sessions that captivate participants from start to finish.

During the training sessions, we emphasise real-world examples and practical application, allowing participants to grasp concepts easily and understand how they relate to their specific roles and responsibilities. We encourage a dynamic learning environment with questions, discussions, and knowledge sharing among participants. If we didn’t, the course would be boring for us to deliver, and we often get super smart people attending our courses, so it’s nice when we all learn from each other.

We want every relationship with our clients to extend far beyond the completion of the training course. As part of this, we offer ongoing support to ensure that the knowledge gained during the training is effectively applied within the organisation.

Our training team is always available to address any questions, concerns, or clarifications that may arise in the future. We understand that cyber threats are constantly evolving, and new challenges may emerge over time. Therefore, we stand ready to assist with any security-related queries or provide additional guidance as needed.

We value the enduring relationships we have with our clients, so should you require a refresher session on any topics covered in the course or seek further guidance, we are more than happy to arrange follow-up sessions. Our aim is to be your trusted security partner, and we’re in it for the long haul.
