What is Clashing?

An educational online training that creates and reinforces correct habits of safe behavior in cyberspace, corporate networks, the office, or for home office. Clashing helps you increase the information and cyber security of your company or organization and protect your valuable assets – your data and know-how. Get your employees to play Clashing and don’t give hackers a chance.

Effective learning

Clashing is fun. And it has been proven that people learn best and with least effort through things that entertain them. Repeated play strengthens and automates the right responses. Therefore, in case of a real threat, their response is faster and correct.

As in real life

Clashing uses real-life situations that most of your employees have already experienced. The security training game focuses not only on working from your office, but also on safe remote work – be it from a cafe or from home.

Attacker's view

Every employee can take on the role of an attacker when playing Clashing training. This point of view gives them a better perspective and reinforces the right habits. They can also choose whether they want to play against a colleague or the computer.

How Clashing works

Customers stories

I have personally given gamification activities quite a lot of attention in the past few years. Clashing was the first project that really grabbed my attention. It combines accessibility with a professional approach to the topic. We are currently testing the game with a substantial number of employees. We see that they mostly enjoy the experience. The results of our testing and flexibility of the solution enables us to stay on track of our plan to replace cyber security e-learning with a platform that motivates employees to think about the topic and not just click-through what is necessary.

We decided for Clashing this year as a way of effectively replacing traditional tests used to verify the acquired knowledge of employees after cyber security training has taken place. In practice, it works by having each employee undergo instructor-led training, which is concluded interactively using the Clashing tool. This way, employees can test each other to find out whether they are able to protect the organisation or, conversely, try out the role of a hacker. I can sincerely recommend this fun form of training.

This is our second year of training employees with the educational game Clashing. Although it isn’t mandatory training, almost 60% of employees take part every time, which we consider a great success. The training appeals to employees primarily for the chance to fight simulated hacking attacks and the game’s great graphics. Employees come away from the training with a feeling that security procedures are worth observing. Clashing now comes with the simpler alternative of training without duels and I believe that this variety will allow us to successfully involve the remaining 40% of our employees in the next quarter.

It’s not just your usual boring training. Clashing provides a playful way for your employees to learn about cyber security; it’s effective, does not take up much time and allows for a varying degree of engagement by your participants – the players. Most of my colleagues found this method to be better than our current solution.

As part of our transformation, we had been looking fora suitable digital tool to help us increase cyber security awareness among our employees. Clashing’s playful teaching method intrigued us. Employees do not even realize that they are learning. In 2022, we even managed to include Clashing into our annual education plan. To spice up the process, employees can also take part in a voluntary summer tournament. That is another element of Clashing that we enjoy – it connects our employees across continents.

The school by play concept is hundreds of years old. The gamification of processes through technology has been around for a while as well. That’s why I’m delighted to finally see a good domestic solution that is not only functional, but also well designed. I can only recommend it!

(Clashing) is well made – not just due its design (which is traditionally the most problematic part), but also its choice of topic – if you don’t know anything (or very little) about information/cyber security, this is a great way to learn a lot of practical stuff.

It has a great design. Every card (both offensive and defensive) offers insights and information that help you better understand what happened/is happening and why. I don’t know if this was deliberate, but some of the actions and moves are not 100% obvious. Personally, I believe it should be like this. If action-reaction were immediately clear, it would be not only boring, but also predictable. Clashing by Anect is certainly a great piece of work.
