Exposed Exhibition

Agency: Special


New Zealand cyber scams increased 33% in 2023. Resulting in $198 million lost.

Yet the human impact and scale remained unseen.

CERT NZ (New Zealand Government Cyber Security Authority) created ‘EXPOSED: A photography exhibition through the lens of a hacker’ put a candid face to the problem for Cyber Security Week. Ten real victims of cyber crime gave us permission to capture their image. Not through a traditional shoot, but literally through their devices – when they weren’t expecting it. Mimicking the uninvited gaze of hackers.

By exposing victims, we exposed the dangers of online scammers. Reaching 4,792,225 Kiwi through our exhibition, OOH and all major news outlets.

This professional campaign titled 'Exposed Exhibition ' was published in New Zealand in November, 2023. It was created for the brand: CERTNZ, by ad agency: Special. This Experiential medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted 4 months ago.
