There are many topics in cyber security that motivate and excite students to learn as well as other topics that do not. The present paper outlines a learning design devised to motivate and engage students with some topics in cyber security using films. Learners are allocated to groups, select a film from a list, identify relevant cyber security concepts that appear in the film and share them with others. The present paper outlines the motivation for the activity, the learning design, feedback from students on an initial execution as well as discussion before offering some concluding thoughts.
