Welcome to the first iteration of our Backdoors & Breaches, an Incident Response Card Game, from Black Hills Information Security and Active Countermeasures. Backdoors & Breaches contains 52 unique cards to help you conduct incident response tabletop exercises and learn attack tactics, tools, and methods.
We know this card game will continue to improve and evolve over time based on your feedback and by being played and modified by the infosec community. We have a few expansion packs planned for 2020.
We’re excited for you to play and learn from the game!
Below you will find our directions on how to play, but we know you’ll hack and customize the deck of cards to fit your own needs for you and your team or students.
