'Hack-A-Cat' is now available at no-cost to all Roblox platform users as part of KnowBe4’s commitment to bolster cybersecurity education and interest for young people
(BUSINESS WIRE) -- KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced the launch of its new cybersecurity game 'Hack-A-Cat', available on Roblox, one of the most popular gaming platforms on the market today.
The game is KnowBe4’s first entry into the Roblox platform and is aimed to educate young people about cyber threats and cybersecurity best practices.
In 'Hack-A-Cat', up to four players can take on the role of either a cat or a mouse to compete head-to-head to collect tokens and reach their goals. The cats’ mission is to ship their tuna before the timer runs out, while the mice work to sabotage the cats’ efforts using real security hacking tactics. Regardless of their role, the game teaches players vital cybersecurity skills via lessons on email safety, recognizing cyber threats and more.
“We thought our new 'Hack-A-Cat' game was a unique opportunity to inspire interest in cybersecurity for a younger audience using Roblox,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4. “Cybersecurity education is crucial at every age, especially for young people who spend a lot of time online exposed to security threats they may not even be aware of. 'Hack-A-Cat' is a game and tool all-in-one, as it fosters cybersecurity awareness and educates players to safely navigate the digital world.”
