NYUPoly CSAW Security Awareness Video Competition
NYUPoly Cyber Security Awareness Week
From its humble beginnings as a small, local cyber security competition to the largest student-centered cyber security competition in the United States, CSAW has become a true worldwide phenomenon. Now in its 10th year, CSAW has grown to include a research conference, talks by industry experts, and a career fair featuring an impressive list of corporate partners.
Hosted by NYU-Poly’s Information Systems and Security Laboratory (ISIS Lab), the competition’s hands-on challenges are created and managed by NYU-Poly graduate and undergraduate students in consultation with NYU-Poly faculty and industry leaders. CSAW attracts the best and brightest high school, undergraduate and graduate students from around the globe, making it an event for students, by students, fostered by experts.
The CSAW awareness challenge is a way for the participants of CSAW to share their knowledge of cyber security. We are providing you with an opportunity to either break down high level cyber security concepts and make them more easily understood to laypeople, or to reinforce why simple concepts (like locking your laptop when you walk away) are so important.
This year in an effort to better fit the content of the rest of CSAW, the awareness competition will be changing direction a little. In the past the competition was based around the creation of a public service announcement style short video, and while we loved a lot of the submissions every year, the total submission numbers were always low compared to the rest of CSAW. We believe this was due to a mismatch of interests, the worlds of cinematography and cybersecurity have only a small overlap.
This year we are attempting to address this lack of potential by transitioning to a web based competition. We are asking you to create an interactive web experience that will teach users about some key aspect of everyday cyber security principals.
