Cyber Security Challenge UK runs a series of exciting national competitions aimed at raising awareness of cyber security careers and encouraging more talented people to join the profession. The Challenge is sponsored by some of the UK’s leading security and government organisations and prizes include over £100,000 worth of educational prizes including paid internships and training courses.
The latest competition sees the Challenge partner with BT and Get Safe Online to launch an exciting competition called 'Can You Talk Security?' Students are invited to propose innovative ways to help small businesses understand cyber security threats and effective ways to secure themselves. This is a great opportunity for any creative people interested in a career in either cyber security or the communications profession generally to get involved in a national competition.
Winners will get the opportunity to work with a professional creative team to turn their concept into a national marketing campaign featured on the Get Safe Online website. There are also technical and creative training courses, work experience taster days and membership of professional bodies on offer for successful entries. All the finalists will be invited to an awards event which will be held on the revolving 34th floor of the BT Tower in London later this year.
