Potential insiders are individuals with privileged access to IT components, IT services, installations, documents or other critical information and devices. Because of their access and knowledge, insider threats are particularly dangerous and at the same time difficult to defend against.
With the tabletop game Operation Digital Butterfly, possible attacks by insiders in multiple settings as well as possible countermeasures can be identified. Several teams play the role of malicious insiders and compete against each other.
The serious game Operation Digital Butterfly is a tabletop game, which can be played both in a face-to-face event and virtually. For a virtual event a video conferencing tool with breakout function is required. Use the digital card deck in such events.
