Title: An Abstract Cyber Security Strategy Game
Proposer: Hans-Wolfgang Loidl
Suggested supervisors: Hans-Wolfgang Loidl
Goal: Implement and evaluate a boardgame on the topic of "cyber security".
Cyber security is currently one of the main priority areas of the UK government with its UK Cyber Security Strategy  outlining the Government’s plans for ensuring a secure and prosperous cyberspace for UK citizens and businesses. A recent boardgame, designed by Andreas Haggman, aims to model, on an abstract level, the threats and vulnerabilities of the UK and other technology-focused states in the context of on-line business and government. The main aim of this project is to implement Haggman's design for a cyber strategy game on a mobile deviced, preferably Android, and to evaluate the game by running a gaming session with testers and evaluate their experience as well as the game dynamics.
The project will proceed in the following stages:
Resources required: Android devices (can be provided by the department).
Degree of difficulty: Moderate
Background needed: Requires good programming background; a general interest in game design is desirable.
