The 2010 Cyber Security Challenge's deadline for applications has been extended by one week. The winners of the second annual Cyber Security Challenge will receive a $10,000 cash award, sponsored by BAE Systems and exclusive mentorship by Accenture. The top selected entries from the first round will present their ideas to a panel of judges at the GSC Security Summit in London on Nov 11-12. The judges come from industry, academia, venture capital and government.

This Asian regional finalist of the GSC in 2007 TenCube was purchased by McAfee in a multi-million dollar deal. The CEO of TenCube, Darius Cheung said: “The GSC has been a great opportunity for us to participate in a growing security ecosystem, learn from the experts and other participants, as well as to compete and showcase our innovation.”
