The Original Game - Amanita Whitehat and the Curious Case of the Compromised Computers
You are Amanita Whitehat, a cyber security expert tasked with saving your employer from several attacks on their company's data. To fight against the many intrusions, talk with each employee to find and cure what is plaguing their systems. Some cyber attacks occur virtually, while others are physical, so keep an open mind and have fun!
About the Project
In early 2021, the NCF, supported by a grant from the Arundel Community Development Services, Inc., teamed with Anne Arundel Community College to sponsor a three-student intern team to develop, design, construct, and deliver an operational cybersecurity-themed game. The target audience for the game is K-12 with a focus on middle school. The game would first be available to play on the NCF website, and then eventually via a kiosk at the National Cryptologic Museum. This project had numerous benefits for the intern team, including project management experience and leveraging their cybersecurity, networking, digital forensics, and computer science knowledge.
The NCF is grateful to this impressive team for the fantastic work they did to make this important project a reality. We are now looking forward to the next game in the Amanita Whitehat series - stay tuned!
