NCC Group sponsoring second Cyber 10K competition

Continuing to invest in a new generation of cyber-security professionals, the NCC Group will sponsor its Cyber 10K competition for the second year.

The competition is designed to intrigue creative thinkers and find new ideas and approaches in the security industry while discovering new talent.

It seeks innovative, technical and non-technical solutions that can be applied to raise and test awareness as well as change current risky behaviours regarding corporate and personal information.

Entrants have been encouraged to focus their efforts on cloud security; cyber-incident response and clean-up; IoT and mobile security; consumer and user awareness, training and support; and cyber-security on small budgets.

The winner will receive £10,000 to produce their security idea in addition to expert supervision and advice from security veterans at NCC Group.
