2007 Computer Security Awareness Video Contest

Time 10/11/07 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

The 2007 Computer Security Awareness Video Contest was conducted by the
Educause/Internet2 Computer and Network Security Task Force, the National
Cyber Security Alliance and ResearchChannel to raise awareness about and
increase computer security at colleges and universities

Six winners were chosen from a wide array of videos submitted by students at
colleges and universities throughout the country. Using lively vignettes and
campus-based scenarios, the short videos and public service announcements
explain computer security problems and actions students should take to
safeguard their computers and personal information. Since the largest group
falling victim to identity theft is men and women between the ages of 18 and
29, it is important for college and university students to understand the
risks of being online and how to protect their personal information,
computer and campus networks. The contest gave student film makers an
opportunity to learn about this problem and communicate it their peers.

. This is a good case study of two organizations collaborating to organize and conduct the contest and using internet technologies to judge the contest and distribute the winners. The panel represents views from both the groups conducting the video contest and the students and their faculty advisors who participated in the contest.
