The UK’s first civilian cyber security training camps have ended with the announcement of eight new finalists for this year’s Cyber Security Challenge UK.
Held across England and Scotland, the camps provided talented amateurs the opportunity to learn about cyber defence from seasoned professionals and develop their skills for a career in the industry.
The events culminated in a camp-versus-camp online game of attack and defence through the SANS Netwars platform, used to train cyber security professionals in government departments and major corporations around the world.
After four days of competitions, talks and assessments, the finalists were announced as Adam Tonks, Robert Laverick, Matt Watkins, Stephen Martin, Darren Brooke, Brendan Saunders, Adele Rattenbury and Andrew Gill.
