GCHQ supports Cyber Security Challenge UK's 2015 Masterclass
Cyber security experts from BT, GCHQ, the National Crime Agency, Lockheed Martin, Juniper and Airbus Group will design a cyber terrorist attack simulation specifically to test the skills of UK amateur online defenders. The attack will form the Cyber Security Challenge UK’s 2015 Masterclass final , the culmination of almost a year’s worth of nationwide competitions to identify new talent for the cyber security profession and address a critical skills shortage that affects government bodies, businesses and citizens alike.
The 42 finalists will spend two days in March investigating and preventing simulated attacks by a cyber terrorist group aiming to cause real world damage that could bring physical harm to citizens in central London.
