The Challenge will reward the best talent with career enabling prizes that will link them with the courses and training they need to develop and put them in touch with an industry actively seeking new skilled recruits. It marks the first time that industry, government and the education sector have come together to tackle what is an increasingly important issue for for our country’s digital economy, chosen way of living and national security.
The Challenge is a not for profit business, shaped by a consortium of cyber security leaders, who, through their involvement and sponsorship, are helping to strengthen our workforce and protect the UK in the face of an increasing threat.
