Current information security education approaches tend to focus on theories and concepts. Although these conventional education strategies have their own advantages, students can also benefit from pedagogical strategies that are more interactive and scenario-driven. In particular, the current net-generation of students are often more likely to prefer learning in a feedback-rich and contextualized environment. Therefore, an environment in which learning occurs in a game-like context can be highly effective in teaching students information security topics, especially in introductory courses.
