Kaspersky and Mystery Manila teamed up to bring Filipinos into a virtual game where they can experience being cybercrime detectives, the Cyber Hunt game.
In Kaspersky’s Cyber Hunt game, a player will act the role of a member of a bank’s IT team that needs to stop a cybercriminal group from stealing billions of dollars from its coffers. To finish the game, players need to find out who is the cybercriminal behind the heist in less than one hour by solving various puzzles. These puzzles involved learning about threat intelligence, in which as with any game created by Mystery Manila, players will have to look for clues and put together pieces of evidence to solve the cybercrime mystery.
“Threat intelligence is all about sifting through piles of data. Threat intelligence can identify and analyze cyber threats targeting an organization. In real-life cybersecurity scenarios, the process of tracking, analyzing, interpreting, and mitigating cyberattacks requires huge efforts using sophisticated tools and technology combined with human expertise,” said Yeo Siang Tiong, general manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky.
“This game, which has been produced by Mystery Manila for Kaspersky, is a basic simulation of a small aspect of a cyber-attack scenario that would give Filipinos a general idea and experience of how cybersecurity experts hunt down criminals in the online world,” he added.
Kaspersky’s Cyber Hunt game has four stages which can be played by at least five people to as many as 15 people per session. Each player needs to use Zoom with a stable video and audio connection using either a mobile device or desktop.
For only PHP399 per head, the game is now available to play every hour starting at 11AM Manila time. Book now through Mystery Manila at https://booknow.mysterymanila.com.
