Data Security has a new challenge

While technology has been at the forefront of the news lately, with foreign surveillance programs being identified for monitoring UK phone calls and internet data and space robots discovering historical proof of water on Mars, most of this news has been around how technology helps create histories – either of data or physical changes.
One article, however, which caught my eye in the news recently was about how children are being used to shape the future of data security.The Cyber Security Challenge (cybersecuritychallenge.org.uk), now in its fourth year, is getting schoolchildren between 14 and 16 to compete to see who can come up with the toughest codes to break.
