Cyber Security | Challenge | Sécurité Informatique

Surrey area college and university undergraduate students will compete in a realistic cyber breach simulation – hands-on participation and analysis – and some students may receive intern positions with local IT Security companies.

Objectives of the event:
– Jobs for students
– Great candidates for employers
– Community recognition for sponsors
– Improving skills of the cyber workforce in Surrey


When and Where:
Friday, January 25, 2019
8:30 to 5:00
City of Surrey – City Hall


Format: Students will compete in teams to recon a vulnerable computer network, break through the cyber defenses, take control of the systems, and advise the company on how to defend against cyber attacks. Finalists will do on-site interviews with the sponsoring companies.

Prizes: Winning students will receive prizes up to, we expect, a fully-paid intern position in a local IT Security company doing serious IT Security work. The posting will be full-time, fully-paid for 4 to 8 months.

Sponsors:  Huge thanks to the City of Surrey for inspiring, funding, and hosting this event – as well as hiring one of the winning students.  They are our Platinum Sponsor!

And thanks to Coast Capital, a Gold sponsor who will also be funding, and hiring a student from the winning teams.  Scalar is a Gold Sponsor as well, and may be hiring.
