SXSW Interactive 2015

Each year, South by Southwest draws thousands of thought leaders to Austin, Texas to share ideas and skills, and network with other professionals. After an intense selection process, SXSW has selected four Center sessions to be featured during the 2015 festival.

The Center's SXSW 2015 Sessions

SXSW Gaming Expo

The Center will also have a booth at SXSW's free Gaming Expo at the Palmer Events Center from Friday, March 13 through Sunday, March 15. The Center will showcase "Beat the Thief," a web-based game focused on online safety. It allows players to share information about their character and an upcoming birthday part on an in-game social network. By making choices about sharing that information publicly or privately, players discover how to safely communicate with their friends and beat the identity thief.

  • Perfect for kids aged 8-10
  • Lets kids practice using social networks in a safe game environment
  • Teaches kids what's safe to share online and what to keep private, based on Center for Identity research
  • Available online and for Apple and Android tablets
