[CSAWCTF] CSAW Student Cyber-security Video Contest, sponsored by Adobe
We know you have worked hard to compete in a rigorous security
competition at CSAW. Do you want to try your hand at a fun
competition?

Registration has been extended in that Adobe Student Security
Awareness Video Competition, in CSAW 2012 at NYU-Poly. In this
competition, students are invited to create and submit a 30 second
video in this year's theme, Security Every Device Everywhere, with
cash prizes of

* 1st place: $1,000
* 2nd place: $750
* 3rd place: $500

As portable devices are often becoming replacements for and/or
extensions of our personal computers, keeping everything equally
secure is becoming increasingly important. Keeping every device secure
requires the following core principles, and as such we are requesting
submissions for this year's contest tackle one or more of the
following ideas:

• Always keeping your application and system software up-to-date,
• Using high quality, difficult to guess and unique passwords on all
of your devices
• When available, configuring your online accounts to use multi-factor
authentication
• Never sharing your credentials with anyone
• Using up-to-date security software on every device

This competition is open to all currently enrolled High School,
Undergraduate and Graduate students attending any institution. For
high school students, prizes go to your school's science or computing
department.

To be inspired by last year's winners, see them on YouTube by

professionals.
