Queen's University Students win second place in Cyber Competition
Many congratulations to the Talk Data to Me team, a group of first year LINCS (Leverhulme Interdisciplinary Network on Cybersecurity and Society) doctoral scholars who have finished second place at the Atlantic 9/12 UK Cyber Competition, 18 – 19 February 2020 in the BT Tower in London. The team competed over two days in a fictional cyberattack.
LINCS brings together The Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice and the Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT) to develop a distinctive cohort of doctoral students working across the boundaries of their disciplines.
The team from Queen's narrowly missed first place in this prestigious competition, being pipped at the post by a team from Oxford University. Their prize is a two-week placement with the cyber-security team at Beazley.
The team leader, Cian Luddy, commented that dealing with a live cyberattack was challenging and dramatic. The team worked extremely well together, combining their knowledge and skills from different disciplines to achieve this success.
