A JOB combating threats from cyberspace could be the ultimate prize for the winners of an online challenge posed by GCHQ to recruit the most skilled mathematicians, code breakers and ethical hackers in the UK.
The ‘Can You Find It?’ competition is being run on behalf of GCHQ by resourcing specialist TMP Worldwide and will challenge both experienced and self-taught techies to crack a series of cryptic codes.
They will take you on a cyber treasure hunt by giving a series of clues, leading you to a number of different places around the world-wide web which will ultimately unlock the final answer.
The complex codes have been created by a GCHQ team of top mathematicians. They set a high bar for recruiting curious, tenacious and creative candidates who have the intellectual ability, though not necessarily the practical experience or qualifications, to join GCHQ and support the Government’s national cyber security agenda.
