Search for Student Filmmakers Nears the End
16 Days Remain in Countdown to Deadline for Cyber Security Awareness Video Challenge
Only 16 days remain for student filmmakers to submit a short video clip raising awareness about digital security and privacy issues to compete for prizes of up to $1,000. The contest is part of Polytechnic Institute of New York University’s Cyber Security Awareness Week (CSAW), one of the oldest and broadest student-led competitions of its kind.
“Registrations for all of the CSAW challenges set records this year, as students and educators become increasingly aware of the importance of protecting our digital privacy and security as well as the dire need for highly trained experts in the field,” said Nasir Memon, director of the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) cyber security program. “CSAW has been building a network of dedicated students, alumni and professionals for eight years, but we are admittedly novices in filmmaking. So we’re putting the call out for high school, undergraduate and graduate students with cameras as simple as iPhones to help us spread the word about how other students can protect their digital lives.”
