Focus: Institution and HR Management
Country: United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Created: Aug 12, 2014

The Cyber Security Challenge UK group has partnered with defence and security company Northrop Grumman to bring the 'Cyber Patriot' cyber education programme to the UK. The programme has already involved over 250,000 budding cyber defence professionals across the US. The competition begins in October with a practice round, followed by two competition rounds - one later in October and one in January 2015. The programme is designed to inspire young people towards careers in cyber security and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It will be called CyberCenturion in the UK and sit between the existing Cyber Security Challenge schools programme for secondary schools, and the main Challenge competition programme.
