In recent years, the notion of gamification has gained some interest within the scientific community. Gamification denotes the use of typical gaming mechanisms, like collecting points, reaching different levels or gaining a spot on a highscore list, in a non-gaming related context. One of the most important application areas of gamification is education, e. g. learning a foreign language or basic arithmetics. There have been, however, few attempts to use games for IT-Security education. The present paper will review the existing approaches in this area, present a serious game that has been produced at Stuttgart Media University on behalf of the swiss bank UBS, and will provide an outlook on planned further activities in this area.
