Of those eight vehicles — wrapped by its neighbors at San Diego-based
ad-tech startup Wrapify
— one will be the designated "Cybersecurity Cash Car." The car and its
Cybersecurity Awareness Team will be parked in various places around San
Diego during the month of October, giving cash to people who correctly
answer cyber-related questions. Anyone passing by the designated
Cybersecurity Cash Car can play, with a chance to win hundreds of
dollars in cash.

For hints on the Cybersecurity Cash Car's pop-up locations, follow @ESET

online.

All the wrapped cars sport an eset.com/cybersecurity
URL, which is a page that contains free cybersecurity tools and
resources for businesses and individuals, including ESET's popular, free Cybersecurity
Awareness Training
.

As part of the initiative, ESET will also match dollar for dollar
players' winnings with a donation to the National
Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA)
, the nation's leading cybersecurity
awareness nonprofit. NCSAM was co-founded and is co-led by NCSA and the
U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Now in its 14th year, this annual
event is dedicated to ensuring all digital citizens have the resources
they need to stay safer and more secure online and that protecting the
internet is "Our Shared Responsibility."
