For Cyber Security Awareness Month, Florida State University’s Information Technology Services (FSU-ITS) challenged UF to a Cyber Bowl, an online game played on the virtual playing field. The Cyber Bowl will be live from October 3 – 14. It’s set up like a football game with four quarters. Each “quarter” contains one question related to social engineering. So…how do the Gators win?
The university who can get the most students, faculty, and staff game players wins. To register your entry in the game, all that’s needed is a valid UFL.EDU email address. The Florida State community is answering the same questions that UF is. And just for playing the Cyber Bowl, you could win a pair of tickets to the Florida-Florida State game on November 25! UFIT will randomly select one student and one faculty/staff member from all game entries to win the tickets. You don’t have to answer the questions correctly for a chance to win. Just complete the entry screen after the questions. And hey, learning more about social engineering is a “win” for you and for your university.
To play, visit https://cyberbowl.security.ufl.edu/ anytime between October 3 – 14, answer the questions, and help us beat the ‘Noles! That’s always a good thing, whether we’re playing FSU in a virtual location or a physical one. Thanks for participating in the Cyber Bowl and…GO GATORS!
