Gamify your cyber security training with our immersive Cyber Escape Room experiences

Gain and retain cyber awareness knowledge and reduce cyber threats across your organisation.

Avoid being a cyber statistic by raising your cyber awareness

Human error is the primary way hackers infiltrate organisations’ computer systems, comprising 95% of breaches^. Whether accidental or deliberate, these mistakes are costly, tallying $33 billion for Aussie businesses last financial year*.

 It is far too easy for a staff member to click the wrong link or write a password on a post-it note that gets into the wrong hands when general cyber awareness is lacking across an organisation. This is why effective education to develop awareness to drive behavioural change is so crucial to mitigate the risks. 

The problem is that most traditional training methods are an arduous, highly forgettable process that drains staff patience more than empowers them to retain crucial lessons.

The solution? Our Cyber Escape Rooms

Layer 8 Cyber Escape Rooms are a unique approach to educating staff with a scientifically proven formula that enables staff to gain and retain the knowledge presented. We facilitate enjoyable team-building activities that improve knowledge retention and create change through immersive gamification of cyber awareness learning. 

Our virtual and physical Cyber Escape Rooms present fun puzzles and tasks for a team to collaboratively ‘escape.’ 

With over 5,000 participants completing an escape room and gaining their Level 1 of Layer 8’s Cyber Awareness certification process, it is a tried and true means to level up any organisation’s cyber security awareness.

Our Escape Rooms cater to your work environment

Is your organisation operating from a specific physical location, or have you pivoted to the comforts of flexible and remote work? Regardless of your situation, Layer 8 can provide your team with an immersive and invaluable team-building experience that caters to your unique requirements.


Our Cyber Escape Rooms are a proven interactive learning method for ensuring staff retain valuable cyber security knowledge and habits. 

Sessions are a fully customised, fun team-building activity to achieve together.

Our facilitators will visit your site, set up the chosen escape room activities and deliver an immersive educational experience.

We can even customise the themes, goals and chosen location to fit your team’s interests and objectives!


For virtual or dispersed workforces, we offer a virtualised version of our escape rooms that provides all the value of our physical escape rooms without the need to consider staff logistics and travel.

We provide a variety of themes or customised options that are tailored to your organisation’s specific needs and interests.

Our Layer 8 Security experts facilitate these virtual sessions via Microsoft Teams to ensure easy access, collaboration and immersive fun for your team from anywhere.

Learning Objectives

While our Escape Rooms are fun-filled and immersive activities for your team, they are scientifically crafted to embed key learnings around risk mitigation. These lessons are easily retained by your team long into the future and, unlike traditional training sessions – are not so readily forgotten.

This ensures the knowledge is put into practice by your team and induces organisational cyber-aware behavioural change, which is the most crucial step in securing any organisation from cyber threats.

Password Hygiene

Remembering a complex password is one challenging task for us humans. We often write down the password somewhere prone to theft or choose something simple that’s easily remembered or related to. This makes it too easy for hacking tools and algorithms to predict and crack passwords.

Phishing Awareness

Phishing is one of the most frequent types of cyber attacks out there. In fact, we all have likely received an email from a fraudster claiming to be one of your service providers. Learning the ways to identify phishing attacks before clicking anything is paramount to security and a lesson that is integral for any team.

Social Media Rules

The social media platforms we’ve all grown dependent on are often weaponised against us. Cyber criminals are taking advantage of our trust in social media sites and have been using them to gain access to sensitive information, access corporate and government networks, attempt to influence government elections, and more.

Physical Security

Hackers don’t live on the clock or follow a 9-5 schedule. In fact, it is in their favour to leverage the schedules of staff no longer on the premises when it comes to the physical security vulnerabilities. Leaving computers logged in or paperwork for tomorrow on your desk overnight opens the door to low-tech breaches and theft.

Securing Sensitive Data

While organisations focus significant resources on mitigating external threat actors, insider risks are likely to pose an even greater financial threat to the enterprise. The Ponemon Institute’s “Cost of Insider Threats” report found the average cost of insider-caused incidents was over double the global average of all other breaches in 2017.


Adopting widespread remote and hybrid work environments has empowered many staff with added flexibility to their lives. However, it has also inadvertently created a significant increase in network end-points spread far and wide for hackers to target. Ensuring your systems and staff are just secure at home is essential to maintain security for your organisation.

USB Device Security

USB drives, while convenient, are easily corruptible. Like a tiny Trojan Horse, they can enter your organisation undetected and cause unprecedented damage once plugged into a device on your network with malware. Additionally, these compact devices are easily lost or misplaced, enabling sensitive data to too easily fall into the wrong hands.

Social Engineering

Social engineering is essentially the art of gaining access to buildings, systems or data by exploiting human psychology and behaviour rather than breaking in or using technical hacking techniques. For example, instead of finding a software vulnerability, a social engineer might call an employee and pose as an IT support person, trying to trick the employee into divulging his password.

Your Cyber Escape Room Missions

We have many different types of games available for both on premises and remote teams, not just Escape Rooms, including Game Shows, Treasure Hunts, and even customised themes of your choosing. By participating in these games, your staff will not only enhance their knowledge, but they will have fun doing it as well.

Cyber security is serious. It threatens all organisations.

Layer 8 Security has the proven solution to delivering engaging, memorable cyber awareness training but also knows that simply reading about new information like this will likely be quickly forgotten! To keep your team secure now and into the future and have some fun in the process, contact us to book your Cyber Escape Room today.
