Cyber attacks are one of the greatest challenges faced by companies and annual costs for cyber security could increase to as much as US$ 90 billion by 2030. Cyber security encompasses much more than just technology. This is because attacks can be traced back to human error in more than 30% of security incidents. It is therefore all the more important to increase awareness among employees about the dangers of cyber attacks – and that's exactly where the Cyber Escape Room developed by PwC comes into play.
The most common causes of human error:
Supervisory authorities have also singled out the human factor as a risk to cyber security and are increasing their focus on compliance with awareness-raising requirements. Companies can address this risk by providing the appropriate training and further education.
PwC has developed its comprehensive Security Awareness Program to increase employee awareness about the dangers of cyber attacks. One component of this program is the Cyber Escape Room developed by PwC Germany. By allowing their IT employees to experience realistic scenarios, companies can spark greater interest in this topic and communicate complex information using a game-based approach. The Cyber Escape Room helps to reduce security incidents by strengthening awareness among employees. A major factor for success here is the excitement of a simulation that applies gamification techniques.
"In a business environment where cyber attacks are only a question of time, it is vital to be prepared."

Development time in the period from March 2018 to February 2019.
We surveyed participants from the widest possible range of organizations about their experiences in the Cyber Escape Room.
"I enjoyed how we developed and applied knowledge independently. The tasks were doable for a 'layperson' but participants still had to assist each other."
"The level of detail in the simulation was impressive. It was great that SQL and brute force were also included. We had previously heard of them, but had never worked on them before. This meant that we could get an impression of how an attack might proceed in reality."
"The Cyber Escape Room provides a good overview of common hacking methods and concepts."
"Great story! Not too difficult and also not too frustrating – a good learning experience!"
"The event organizers offer a good measure of assistance while simultaneously providing plenty of space for trying things out."
"Good specialist assistance, exciting topic, pleasant group size and high-quality training materials – a great event overall."
