Conference on Cyberspace? Yeah, we started that.
(Cyber) Crime doesn’t pay
British companies already do a ton of business over the Internet, so naturally we want to make the UK one of the safest places in the world to do business in cyberspace.
We’re working alongside the new (and snappily-titled) National Crime Agency (launched in early October) to root out phishing scams, bring online fraudsters to book and tackle organised crime.
Kind of like a cyber Batman without the costume. (Oh please let it be without the costume…)
I am rubber, you are glue
Taking it global
Knowledge is power
Technology is cool, but by jiminy is it ever hard to keep up with. We’re helping all kinds of people to learn more: sponsoring cyber-related PhDs and apprenticeships, beefing up the high school IT curriculum, even training our civil servants to protect online data.
Can you crack the code?
Chances are, probably not. But if you can, and you are a British student, you stand a chance of winning $1,600 in Cyber Security Challenge UK! The goal of the challenge, sponsored by UK tech giants like QinetiQ, Sophos, Cassidian and Raytheon, is to encourage the next generation of students to understand the cyber world and move toward careers in the sector.
