Target audience for game: 3rd level students and educators

The Cybersecurity Gamejam 2021 is being organised as part of the CYBER.EU.VET Erasmus+ project. The main objective of the project is to strengthen the European VET capacity to recognise and manage cybersecurity threats (e. g. phishing attacks, botnets, financial and banking frauds, data fraud et.).

The project will help to improve the skills of VET educators in relation to management of cybersecurity threats, which is very important especially considering their central role in the knowledge transfer of good practices and skills to their students. 

Last but not at least, this project will also help to increase the awareness of teachers, students and their families about the importance to recognise such daily risks, which can have both economic and social impact. 

Games developed during the Gamejam will be included in the Cybersecurity Awareness Training material developed as part of the project.
