Back to Basics: Information Security Education for the Youth via Gameplay

Abstract : Cyber technology and information resources are both fundamental components of everybody’s daily life. This means that both society’s adults and youths are exposed to both the benefits and dangers that accompany these resources. Cyber security education is becoming a necessary precaution for individuals to learn how to protect themselves against the dangers of the technologies and resources. This is particularly important for the current and future youth who are the most technology literate generations. This paper presents a novel educational approach that can be used to introduce information security concepts to the youth from a very young age.
