Observations and Opportunities in Cybersecurity Education Game Design
Paul Gestwicki and Kaleb Stumbaugh
Department of Computer Science


Abstract

A recent report from the Cybersecurity Education Workshop identified two critical areas in need of attention: teaching end-users the fundamentals of cybersecurity, and educating children about careers in cybersecurity and the educational paths to them. Video games provide an opportunity to reach new audiences and embed educational lessons. We began by analyzing the current state-of-the-art and developed an epistemology and taxonomy for security education games. We are now applying these findings in an iterative prototyping process to create an original game that meets our educational goals.
