It is October which means it is time for National
Cybersecurity Awareness Month! This month
INTERalliance will be sharing some of our favorite
resources for learning about Cybersecurity with
your school’s chapter!
Targeted Attack: The Game
This interactive video story pits you as the CTO of Fugle, a fictional tech company. Throughout the story you will be required to make strategic decisions about the cyber security practices at your company. Each of your choices will have consequences so choose carefully. This activity provides a good simulation of the security choices you would have to make on a daily basis in a business environment.
picoCTF is a free computer security game with original educational content built on a capture-the-flag framework created by security and privacy experts at Carnegie Mellon University. Gain access to a safe and unique hands on experience where participants must reverse engineer, break, hack, decrypt, and think creatively and critically to solve the challenges and capture the flags.
Security Feud is a cyber security themed version of the popular TV Game show, Family Feud. This is a great game to play if you want to have an engaging meeting. This game is perfect to add some fun to your meeting and help review your chapter’s knowledge of cyber security principles. Sadly this game is only compatible with PowerPoint and not Google Slides. (If you wish to host this at your meeting and do not have access to PowerPoint email Kevin Long and we can figure something out)
CyberStart Go pits you as a secret agent tasked with finding intel about various gangs and hackers. There are a series of challenges to complete which become increasingly difficult as you progress through the game. Upon completing each challenge, you will be given a secret code which will allow you to move on to the next challenge. You (the agent) have 60 minutes to complete all the challenges and bring peace to the cyber security world.
Overthewire’s Wargames feature a range of levels made up of challenges and puzzles designed to teach and test you cyber security concepts and techniques. These challenges start off easy but can get rather challenging later into the game. This resource is only recommended to those with more experience. Access to a terminal will be required to complete this game. (You can use a bash repl on repl.it)
