Presentation: Shall we play a game?
How about executing attack scenarios against your team by emulating threat actors within scenarios called campaigns? Threat actors who will emulate tools, tactics and procedures used by real-world attackers in one or more different categories of attacks. You will be scored on your ability to prevent, detect, respond and recover from events. A determined adversary who will launch goal-based attacks, modelling real-world tactics, tools and methods, with the intent of training your team to identify real indicators of active attacks, provide a forum for tuning defensive tools, as well as facilitate a context to practice and adjust security policies, standards, and procedures.
