  • <p>Building on the success of the Regional Cyber Workshops, FEMA has partnered with cybersecurity experts to develop an engaging strategy board game to explore the dynamics of cyber preparedness. Using gameboards and playing cards, players group within the game &ldquo;community&rdquo; to decide how to invest cyber credits to protect essential services. The community weathers multiple cyber incidents, shares information, and negotiates to prioritize cyber response resources needed to sustain the community&rsquo;s critical functions. Through game play, players learn aspects of the National Institute of Standards and Technology&rsquo;s cybersecurity framework.</p>
