Turn security awareness into a 360º experience
Learning through play: Using game mechanics to activate people’s learning abilities and embed key security lessons.
What’s in it for me?
People learn more by doing rather than by reading. Virtual Reality (VR) provides an immersive and interactive learning environment with a 360º view of your virtual world, filled with security flaws and weaknesses waiting to be uncovered.
The VR game allows you to engage with cyber security in a whole new way. This immersive learning experience establishes motivation and fun and boosts a positive attitude towards cyber security.
How does it look?
You will have the opportunity to play not one but two VR games!
In the first player vs. player competitive game, you will get the chance to role play as the attacker or the defender in a turn-based card game. The cards represent the resources that each side have available at their disposal. Do you know that attackers employ backdoors and keystroke loggers to compromise you? Are you aware of the importance of good password security and anti-virus and the role they play in thwarting cyber attacks? Over 5 rounds, both sides duel it out as they try to get one over the other while having great fun and learning more about cyber!
In the second pulsating game, rhythms are turned into boxes. And now, it’s time to slash them while enjoying the music. Within the visually stunning environment, your goal is to cut all the boxes, coming at you in harmony with the music, by using the sabers in your hands. Every box you slash lends you a new security message and adds points towards your overall tally. All the security messages you uncover are displayed at the end along with a final score which will go on to a leaderboard. The top score for the day earns a special prize!
The lessons you learn while playing the game are reinforced through brochures and posters highlighting key security messages which you can take away from the event. You can also participate in other activities during the event and win cool prizes!
