A team from CENTRIC met with members of the Protect Team at the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Cyber Crime Unit, to celebrate their successes at the recent National Cyber Awards and discuss continuing their award-winning collaboration. The ‘CYBER CENTRIC’ serious game that the two teams worked together to produce won two awards in April: Learning Innovation in Cyber Awareness and Most Original Cyber Security Product. The game beat more than 200 other nominees and was the only entry to be awarded two prizes. The game is being used throughout the region and beyond to encourage behavioural change in businesses in respect of cyber security. The innovative, educational game will be rolled out on a national level in early June. Keen to maintain momentum, the teams already have plans for further exciting work that combines academic excellence with professional expertise to turn research into reality and bring about positive change.
