Unlike linear tabletop exercises, our simulations reflect how a crisis unfolds in the real world – your teams will never know what problem they’ll face next. Continually test and prepare teams using the latest crisis scenarios.
Out-of-the-box scenarios deliver exercises for numerous crisis types and industries. But you can also customize scenarios by adding decision points (injects) or building a completely new exercise to address specific areas of your organization – ensuring continuous improvement.
Exercise results are scored for individuals and the team participating – including the confidence level for each answer. The results help prove an organization will be ready for a real-life crisis (or that more exercising is required). Track individual and team performance over time to prove readiness and enhance decision-making when faced with a real-world crisis.
Browser-based delivery removes the logistical burden of in-person tabletop exercises. No matter where you’re located, Crisis Sim support for scalability makes it perfect for globally-dispersed teams.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there different operational modes for Crisis Sim exercises?Mary Brijlall2023-04-10T20:00:43+00:00
As long as you need! Crisis Sims are fully customizable to suit your unique timescales. Since Immersive Labs’ catalog scenarios have multiple modes, runtime will vary in length. A single player could complete a short scenario in 30 minutes, whereas a facilitated exercise could take several hours.
How does Crisis Sim differ from traditional tabletop exercising?Mary Brijlall2023-04-10T20:02:20+00:00
Immersive Labs’ Crisis Simulator provides realistic scenarios allowing all team members – individually, collectively, or as a facilitated exercise – to learn and practice responding to crises effectively and realistically. Immersive Labs scenarios lead to specific data output around confidence and performance. Organizations can build muscle memory in key areas of decision-making and understand what areas need improvement with in-depth, data-led analysis.
Are Crisis Sim scenarios current with the latest threats?Mary Brijlall2023-04-10T20:03:01+00:00
Immersive Labs’ catalog covers relevant topics like data breaches, ransomware attacks, phishing, and supply chain compromises in the form of exciting crisis scenarios. These scenarios include chatbot hacks, poisoned water facilities, insider threats, IT and OT collisions, and even hospital, university, and vehicle factory meltdowns. Our content also has sims covering several sectors, including finance, government, energy, telecommunications, healthcare, retail, and more!
How does the confidence level for an answer affect the overall score?Mary Brijlall2023-04-12T20:08:08+00:00
The overall score is adjusted to account for confidence levels.
For example, selecting a “weak” answer with a high level of confidence scores less than a weak answer with a low confidence level. This is because proposing a weak answer with high confidence could lead to the participant improperly influencing others in an actual crisis or implementing the solution without checking with team members – which means exposing the organization to higher risk.
