Is anyone aware of any amusing videos on computer security in the workplace?  I’m specifically interested in something that would help motivate people to lock their workstations when they leave their work area.  Thank you.

There are a ton of them on YouTube.  Many produced by University students as part of Cyber Security Awareness Month competitions.   Just do a search ... and you'll find plenty.  Last October (Cyber Security Month), we posted a new funny security video (from these) each week.  Not sure if they increased security, but some got a few good laughs

Check out the Mulberry series. It’s humorous in “The Office” genre.

 

Here’s one on physical security:

(And thanks for posing the question: I just discovered these, and they should prove quite useful).

 

Please let me know if I may be of further service.

My bad – this one is on e-mail attachments – there is a physical security cartoon associated w/ the search results (which I has seen in the past – not all that funny).

As Carmen noted, the EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) hosts a contest for students every other year. There are many videos available on our contest’s YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/SecurityVideoContest as well as the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/secvideocontest

 

Several specifically address locking your laptop (or at least not leaving it unattended).

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

 

Thank you,

Valerie

Since they're on youtube, you'll see other/related that are humorous too.

Get the movie War Games. Show the two scenes using simple passwords: 1. Where David Lightman steals the password, "pencil," from the principal's office and changes his (and his soon to be) girlfriend's grades (this is school related), or; 2. Where David "hacks" the WOPR using a simple password, "Joshua," the name of Dr. Stephen Falken's dead son and almost start's WWIII. It's also fun to see the old technology.
