UK Cyber Security Challenge Launched

The UK's Cyber Security Challenge has been launched, with the aim of attracting new talent to the IT security industry.
"The challenge is based on a similar initiative in the US also aimed at boosting the number of cyber security specialists in the face of unprecedented demand," writes Computer Weekly's Warwick Ashford.
"Initially, the competitions within the challenge will focus on the need of business and government for specialists in network defense and website vulnerabilities," Ashford writes. "The first round of the competitions will be online, followed by a face-to-face round, with winners going through to a final masterclass challenge early in 2011 to find the first UK Cyber Security Champion."
