Expanding the Next Generation’s Skills Development: Using Gamification for Cyber Learning


Out of stock



Many current and aspiring professionals grow their cyber security skills through a “learning by doing” approach and feel comfortable in this methodology. Join the SANS Institute, Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS), CISA, and Illinois Tech as we explore how the decision-making capabilities between an individual contributor and a senior leader can be expanded by using gamification learning on talent development, inclusivity, and building effective security teams.

During this workshop, we will explore an interactive simulation using “real world” scenarios that can be replicated both for industry and academia in the classroom. Each scenario will then be discussed by SANS Institute, WiCyS, CISA, and Illinois Tech to spur dialogue, critical thinking of situations, and melding of different points of view and personalities that a technical professional and learner will likely encounter.
