Event description

Description

* Please note that we have updated the location: 4457 and 5358 VSE Classrooms (TSC) at the Nguyen Engineering Building located at 4400 Patriot Circle on the George Mason University Fairfax campus. The closest parking is the Shendandoah Parking Deck located at 10401 York River Rd; all-day guest parking is $15.


The AWG-C is a training and evaluation tool in which participants conduct all-source strategic intelligence analysis to navigate a simulated, real-world cyber-focused scenario. The game revolves around a team effort to transform raw, technical cyber information into strategic recommendations and actionable intelligence for high-level decision makers. The focus will not be on technical or forensic analysis of malware or networks.



Participants will be called upon to understand and interpret malicious cyber actor tactics, techniques, and procedures, and integrate them in with political, economic, and social factors in order to determine the overall strategic picture and conduct predictive analysis. During the war game, participants will employ individual intelligence tradecraft skills such as critical thinking, research, and presentation, as well as group skills such as information handling, communication procotols, and analytical standards.



The AWG-C is accessible through an internet browser and no other software is required. Computers will be available for participants via a Mason computer lab (location TBD) but participants are welcome to use their own PCs as long as they can maintain a sufficiently reliable internet connection. Aside from these basic technical requirements, a desire to learn, a willingness to work with a group, and a can-do attitude is all that is required to have a rich and rewarding experience while playing the AWG-C.
