Cyber Security Challenge puts student’s skills to the test

George Osborne, Year 13 UTC Reading student, was amongst a group of computer scientists attending a Cyber Security Challenge event in London this summer.

The event was hosted by BAE Systems and HMGCC on 3 September at the Blue Fin building in London. George was placed in a team to complete a series of cyber security tasks throughout the day. The tasks were related to investigating an unnamed bank’s web server which had been compromised when releasing a mobile banking app.

George’s account of the experience can be found here.

Continuing our involvement with the Cyber Security Challenge, we are looking forward to our Cyber Security Challenge Day on 18 October at UTC Reading, where students will learn how to train as cyber security specialists.
