For those of you who may have just realized that October - National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCAM) - is upon us, or just passed us by, and are looking for a quick way to engage and educate staff on security awareness issues, I may have just what you need.

I have just created an Intranet-based security quiz game, currently called “The IT InSecurity Challenge Game”. The format might look familiar to anyone who has watched TV game shows.

It may seem sacrilegious to put something as serious as Information Security into a context of casual fun, but from my experience, this is an effective tool. 

Please watch the short video above and let me know what you think.

Could this solution work to help your team pay more attention to information security risks?

By the way - I'm also looking for a catchy name for this game. What would you suggest? Should I hold a contest to come up with a name?
