Cyber Security Gamification (E)

Track: Steering Innovation

Digital technologies are disrupting and transforming all aspect of our lives. In addition to the many positive impacts, they come with their own risks and vulnerabilities. Cyber risk is the fastest growing enterprise threat and organizational priority today, and it has evolved from a technology issue to an organizational problem. While virtually every major industry faces significant cybersecurity challenges, higher education is particularly vulnerable for several key reasons: dependency on online educational technologies and the public sector requirement for transparency and access. This growing risk requires us to educate learners about the protection of their computing devices and our internet networks from malicious behaviors. To escalate cyber security awareness, a new online game called “Protect the Dataverse” was launched at Lambton College in October. This project is the outcome of a unique partnership formed by Lambton Colllege, the Postsecondary International Network (PIN), Olds College (Alberta), Saskatchewan Polytechnic (Saskatchewan), Central Community College (Nebraska, USA) and Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan).
