The plan to lock feds in a cyber escape room

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency plans to put its employees through a cybersecurity-themed escape room as part of cyber hygiene training, according to an Aug. 10 special notice posted on FedBizOpps.

“The NGA requires a Cybersecurity Escape Room to be customized to the tenets and risks that NGA focuses on. The training moments and challenge questions will be customized to NGA’s information technology and security policies and messaging to provide consistency with the cybersecurity program,” the notice said.

The agency plans to award the sole-source purchase of this training to Living Security Inc., which provides interactive, game-like experiences to better teach security principles.

“Not only will your employee's have a higher retention of the security principles immersed in the escape room, they will also see your investment in the game as a reward, an opportunity to have some fun, learn some things about securing their lifestyle and form a deeper positive relationship with you,” the company website said.

The contract would provide for one-week events each at the NGA Campus East in Springfield, Virginia, and NGA Campus West in St. Louis, Missouri, between Sept. 4 and Oct. 19, 2018.

This contract was first reported by NextGov.
