HuskyHunt: Gamifying Security Awareness for Students

Thursday, May 08 | 9:00AM–10:00AM | Grand Ballroom Salon C/D
Session Type: Professional Development
HuskyHunt is a game developed by the University of Connecticut designed to teach students practical information security lessons while using social media to improve message reach and build local business partnerships to increase overall participation. The talk will focus on the application, the flow of the game, the partnerships we have developed across the institution, and the metrics we are using to determine engagement and reach. We are now considering a multiuniversity Hunt contest for the upcoming fall semester and are hoping to identify schools that will use the software and participate.
