Tim Ogle, a cyber security expert at PA Consulting, is quoted in Information Age’s article about how gamification can boost cyber security.
Tim says: “Gamification will help make people within the business more resilient and able to react to threats. Rather than using outdated methods such as PowerPoint slides to educate employees, do anything that makes education less classroom and more real.”
For example, Tim continues: “Let’s say you had a phishing attack, don’t hide it but share what was used with the whole business so they can see this is real and relevant.”
The article goes on to look at introducing gamification. Tim says: “When introducing gamification, firms need to start from the top down.” He advises wargaming a breach scenario at a senior level. “It simulates the company going through a cyber-attack.
"For example, you have just been hacked; you have lost 20,000 records, what do you do next? When do you talk to the press and what do you say?”
