Computer-Security-Oriented Escape Room


New types of attacks are developed daily targeting companies. If employees are not aware of the consequences and tactics of such attacks, they are not protecting their company. Current teaching methods, such as lectures and videos, may not prepare participants for real life situations. To raise awareness about computer security, two escape rooms were developed by teachers and students of INSA Toulouse, with different approaches for the same goal: raising awareness. Players learn how to reduce risks of being a computer attack victim during hour-long real-life simulations. Choosing strong passwords and spotting fishing emails are just a few of the habits our escape room scenarios can instill in participants to mitigate the damage of hacks and social engineering attacks.
