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.
Summary of Event Day:
The event day, January 25, includes Hacking in the morning, job interviews in the afternoon, and (usually) verbal offers for intern/co-op positions by end of day.
Sponsors' technical managers or team-leads should participate all day Saturday.
The morning is a time to circulate and mentor students. (We will give you instructions and answer sheets.) It's really part of the interview process.
The afternoon is for student interviews.
HR folks may be interested in observing in the morning. Optional.
Most companies will have HR present for the afternoon interviews.
Sponsor PR/Communications staff can attend any time if they want to take photos, video, or connect through social media with tweets or posts during the event.
The top-12 students from the morning competition will all be guaranteed a place in the interviews. As well, the sponsors might "invite" 1 or 2 stronger students from the weaker teams to join the afternoon process.
