Defend Blighty from malware, show online crooks who's boss, bank a pay cheque, and sip a martini. It's not quite James Bond, but if you reckon you're up to the job, good news:
Cyber Security Challenge UK launches today, on Friday, and is supposed to give Brits a chance to prove their computer security skills. Developed by Britain's National Crime Agency (NCA), the contest involves online and face-to-face battles of e-wit.
Now it their fifth year, the games will begin with a competition called Assignment: Opening Lines, in which wannabe digital warriors will fight against a fictitious enemy called The Flag Day Associates.
"The 5th Cyber Security Challenge will be the first time we have brought all our activities and competitions under a single scenario that will evolve with twists and turns over the coming year," said challenge boss Stephanie Daman.
"By creating a mischievous, and above all realistic, nemesis to defend against, the 5th Cyber Security Challenge will be the most eventful and action packed so far, and will help to really excite, inspire and grow our candidate community."
Hmmmmm, not sure what to make of this one...interesting for sure...but how relevant, and does it really promote what it is setting out too?
