Secureworks® Cybersecurity Literacy ChallengeBuild a Game for the Cause By: Secureworks
There are painfully few SecOps people in a world that needs more of us every day. So, it’s vital that we do all we can to promote cybersecurity as a profession—and help newbies better understand the principles that enable us to do our jobs every day.
That’s why Secureworks® has launched the Cybersecurity Literacy Challenge:
- Build a game or entertaining app that teaches any important cybersecurity concept in a fun and interesting way.
- Provide a URL so judges can evaluate what you’ve built.
- Create a three-minute video explaining your concept and make it publicly available to our judges on YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook Video.
