Security Games on Infrastructure NetworksFamily friendly - adult with child image.

Participant teams of two will play a strategic game, where each person plays a role of an attacker or defender of a simulated water network, and acts to disrupt or protect the network components while facing the opponent. A game-theoretic model will be utilized to compute the attacker and defender payoffs. Participants will see how their strategies performed compared to other teams. By conducting repeated plays of this game, the participants will learn how to make decisions in a constrained strategic environment. Finally, the data obtained from these exercises will be analyzed to explain a few practically useful strategies that can be utilized in operation and defense of real-world infrastructures.
