According to the National Crime Agency-UK, cyber crime and fraud is now the UK's most common crime. There is a growing online community of young individuals who are at risk of becoming involved in cyber dependent crime. This event is a pilot project which brings together cyber security experts from the government, industry, and academia with technically curious students to discuss interesting ways and means of preventing cyber crime.

The event is organised to offer participants the following two areas of interest: seminar/workshops for individuals and a Capture the Flag (CTF) competition for school, college and university teams.

Seminar: Organised by BCS-ISSG, in collaboration with Falcon, HEA, Cyber Security Challenge - UK to explore the current threat and prevention scenarios and how HE institutions could collaborate with the wider community to prevent young people being attracted to cyber crime.

Penetration testing and forensics workshops: Penetration testing and forensics are widely considered as opposite sides of the cyber security coin, where penetration testing is a pre-incident process, and forensic is a post-incident process of cyber security life cycle. The event includes two taster workshops for penetration testing and forensics conducted by a team of academics and industry experts in a specialist security lab. The workshops are organised in collaboration with CREST, and London Metropolitan University (LMU).

Cyber Surgery: 1:1 Cyber prevent advice from BCS cyber security students and FALCON.
