Despite its military orgins, wargaming can serve multiple purposes in a variety of civilian contexts. This talk will focus on wargaming for cyber security awareness training, which is a largely underexplored application for wargames. The talk will provide an introduction to wargaming, explaining basic purposes and features, along with some benefits and limitations. Some difficulties of wargaming cyberspace will be explored, before showcasing an original tabletop wargame created for PhD research in this area.
