After 20 years of working in the U.S. intelligence community alongside numerous federal agencies, including the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and Open Source Center, Craig Stronberg joined PwC to focus on helping organizations in the private sector prepare for cyber threats and risks. With an extensive background in counterterrorism, counterintelligence, and cyber threats, Stronberg architected PwC's Game of Threats, a cyber attack simulation game that helps senior executives make decisions when threat actors might target their companies during a breach. The game enables two teams, one on the side of the company and the other on the side of the attackers, to simulate the outcomes of a potential threat in real-time, using an iPad and screen. The company gets to make decisions that could save the company, while the threat actors get to heighten the level of attack or come up with a new strategy. The game has received industry-wide acclaim, including positive reviews from The Wall Street Journal, CIO Journal, WSJ Risk & Compliance Journal, and CNNMoney. Most recently, Stronberg served as a member of the National Intelligence Board, where he is responsible for coordinating strategic counterintelligence analysis for the intelligence community, works with the private sector to increase U.S. companies' awareness of foreign intelligence services, and protects intellectual property.
