Cybersecurity Scavenger Hunt

Come join the Office of Cybersecurity during Cybersecurity Awareness Month to answer these sixteen (16) questions that will help you #BeCyberSmart. Answers to these questions can either be found on our own webpages or the internet. Each question has a clue to lead you in the right direction.

Yes, this is almost the same hunt as last year, and there are no prizes this year, but it still all fun and games (until you are hacked!). The hunt begins here!
