A group of about 30 young people will attend a cyber security boot camp next month set up by the organizations responsible for the Cyber Security Challenge.
The boot camp is receiving input and support from the Metropolitan Police Central E-crime Unit (PCeU), as well as suppliers HP and KPMG.
The training camp will run for five days at Lancaster Univ.
Experienced security professionals will teach the talented amateurs about cyber defence. “It will act as a proof of concept for a series of regional camps that the Challenge is looking to roll out across the UK to develop talent in the younger generation,” said the organisers.
Most of the candidates attending the cyber camp are under 25 and have been selected from hundreds of participants in the Cyber Security Challenge competition which has run since April.
