Mobile Game App Takes First Place in Cybersecurity Entrepreneur Challenge

“Three finalist teams duked it out for first prize in the Cybersecurity Pitch Competition at Boise Entrepreneur Week Wednesday.

It was a reverse pitch competition, meaning teams were presented with a problem in the cybersecurity industry and were tasked with proposing a solution in the form of a new venture. Teams had just under four minutes to pitch their idea to a panel of three judges.

First up was Gamified Scam Awareness Training, or GSAT, created by University of Idaho students Achiraya Anantachote, Deanna Kienbaum and McKenna Jacobs.

GSAT is a mobile app that teaches people how to recognize texting and mobile pop-up scams through playing a game on their phones. Players who win in the game are rewarded with gift cards from GSAT sponsors.”
