Teaching Students Cybersecurity

World's Biggest Student Cybersecurity Games Widen Scope to Teach High School Students Digital Forensics

12th Annual NYU Cyber Security Awareness Week Attracts Thousands from Pre-College through Doctoral Level

PR Newswire | September 16, 2015

The world's biggest student cybersecurity games—New York University Cyber Security Awareness Week (NYU CSAW)—are about to get a whole lot bigger as organizers re-engineer the High School Forensics Challenge to introduce thousands of young investigators to the field of information security.

For the first time this September, the preliminary round will adopt a fast-paced format borrowed from the iconic NYU CSAW Capture the Flag (CTF) hacking contest that attracts tens of thousands of participants worldwide.  The CTF and the digital forensics challenge are just two of the six contests that will bring hundreds of high school and collegiate finalists, their mentors, recruiters, and top academics and professionals to the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering in Brooklyn for the 12th annual NYU CSAW November 12-14, 2015.
