SIGUCCS 2019 Conference Takeaway – Catch the Big Bad Wolf

Catch the Big Bad Wolf: A Cybersecurity-themed Escape Room

Ok, this was not a presentation, but an experience. Attendance was limited due to a limited number of escape room kits. After a short introduction, attendees had to solve a puzzle while learning about cybersecurity.

The good news is that this escape room kit is available for use by anyone. It was originally created by Grinnell College and University of Nebraska. Indiana University customized it to meet their needs and be focused on their educational materials.

Information about the kit (as created by Indiana University) is available here: https://iu.app.box.com/s/l5evubmxk8zbmme623snbe5fa7oek1i9

Takeaways –

Learning about cybersecurity can be fun! – Lisa Brown

The Cybersecurity Escape Room session by Indiana University is really applicable in the short-term for us. If anything, the hard part is figuring out who would deliver the training. But I took that away as something we can act on in the short term. – Allan Chen
