Building cybersecurity awareness among college students must rank as a key duty for academic IT departments. But finger-wagging missives from IT - cops with pocket protectors, in the view of some teens - might get about as much cred as "Reefer Madness" did in an earlier decade. So Educase, Internet2 and the National Cyber Security Alliance pulled together to challenge students to aim their digital video skills at informing their peers on the issue. The winners of the contest - it needs a better name than Cyber Security Awareness Video Contest, the name it has now - were named today. The full list of winners and links to their vids are available here. The winners of the gold medal, $1000 prizes are "Superhighway Safety" by Nathan Blair at Savannah College of Art and Design, and "Bob, You've Been Phished" by Kevin Atef, Johnson Chau, & Michael Wong, Cal Poly Pomona (pictured here.)
