Data Heist is the first card game created to educate players on topics related to Data Protection and Personal Cyber Hygiene. It was created with different features; with simple game play such that an 8-year-old can play, as well as additional rules and features to keep a more mature player engaged.
The game is a bit of an anti-thesis where players play the role of an amateur hacker. The aim of the game is for players to “steal” as much data as they can from unsuspecting victims in the marketplace (and there are many even in real life) using three of the most common forms of attacks that usually result in data loss.
In the more advance game, players may obtain special attacks and use protection measures to thwart attacks of other players so that they themselves can win the game. This simple game is fun, interactive and most importantly under the facilitation of a skilled educator can impart important lessons on data protection and personal cyber hygiene so that players (and their organizations) can be safe from attacks and vigilant to prevent them.
