The importance of Information Assurance (IA) in military operations cannot be overstated. It is a sine qua non that achieving IA requires the effort of all personnel in the organization; just a single untrained end-user is needed to defeat many well thought-out and well-executed security strategies This thesis demonstrated that CyberCIEGE, with its rich elements and tools, can be used to create game scenarios, mimicking real life IA issues, for conveying security lessons to a wide audience of trainees. It provides an excellent alternative to the traditional methods of security education which so often fail in driving home the intended lessons. A military-based CyberCIEGE scenario definition file (SDF) was developed to illustrate and train players on the importance of ensuring hardware and software integrity in operational-critical systems. The focus of the research was on the protection of sensitive information systems through the maintenance of their software integrity and the application of an airgapped network architecture. The test cases developed in this thesis research also contributed to the improvement of the CyberCIEGE game engine.
