Gamification Storyline:

CRYPTO is a dynamic Serious Business Game about cybersecurity. The training takes place in a biotechnology research company in London.


As a participant, you will become Alex Lee, a security analyst and private detective. His task is to infiltrate the company and identify the most important security gaps.


To do this, Alex must interact with the unique and diverse employees of the company. In doing so, he finds common security mistakes, often related to IT and social engineering risk, which are then used by cyber criminals to access and steal valuable, confidential information.


CRYPTO is an exciting, gamified training that combines puzzles, point-and-click exploration elements, and an interesting narrative adventure. As a participant, you will have to find, analyze, and specifically exploit cybersecurity vulnerabilities in the company at all five levels of the Serious Business Game. This will eventually lead you to an unexpected end!


CRYPTO is currently available in the following languages: English, German, French, and Spanish.


Characteristics of the Gamified Training:

  • Game-based didactic methods
  • Applicable and practical content on interpersonal communication skills
  • Results-oriented learning with revolutionary gamification technologies
  • Simulations for experience-based learning

The developed, game-based learning method is a combination of three elements:
