Quest Accepted: Gamifying Security Awareness Training

Security awareness training is BORING, users click through as fast as they can and guess at the questions. Then they forget everything that was just presented to them. This talk will discuss some simple strategies to gamify your security awareness program and help users care. We will discuss a simple approach that will allow you to focus on one security awareness topic at a time. Eventually you will have a full blown game and users who actually practice and have a strong security posture. We will also discuss how to make this fit any budget and how you can get creative with it.
