19 Year old wins UK Cyber Security Challenge

19 Year old wins UK Cyber Security Challenge | STEM Studies | Scoop.it

This week a 19 year old Cambridge student, William Shackleton, took the much coveted title of UK Cyber Security Champion.


.

The 12 month contest tasked the 41 finalists with protecting the UK critical infrastructure from cyber attack.

.

Jointly devised by experts from BT, GCHQ, Lockheed Martin, Juniper Networks and the National Crime Agency, the final event was held this week at the Churchill Cabinet War Rooms.

.

Finalists were selected over the course of a year in which they had to undertake face-to-face cyber battles.

.

In the final task teams worked together to investigate and stop a simulated attack which first struck on the financial district, then the transport network, utilities and finally a nuclear reactor.
