Topic: Gaming for Strategic Decision Making. No matter the organization, decisions must always be made as to where to invest limited resources. Some choices are simple, such as immediate payoff items or clearly critical needs. But how does one judge when to invest in something significant with a payoff that may not come for quite some time? In cyber security, a good defense may never show its ROI id it acts as a deterrent, so how can one justify that? One method of exploring these decisions is through gaming. By using gaming tools to explore strategic choices and their consequences, organizations can inform their decision making and apply their resources in the manner best for their needs.
