Gamify Security Awareness
by Mike Woolard from OEConnection

October was Cyber Security Awareness Month, and instead of the run of the mill policy and paperwork signoff, we decided to train and spread the word in a more effective way, by making a game of it.  OEC held various training sessions and security games/events throughout the month culminating in a grand event centered around a CTF competition, sponsored by OEC & SecureState, that involved everything the employees learned throughout the month.  We were able to draw interest from all sides of the house – tech, non-tech, & executives and did it all without it being mandatory.  This talk will cover what was done, how we did it, what worked, what didn’t and what
