Cyber Security Festival
Six schools from the local area joined Bromsgrove Preparatory pupils on Thursday for an exciting day investigating Cyber Security.
The Cyber Security Festival was run by the Tablet Academy and sponsored by The Cyber Security Challenge. Held across two repeated sessions, pupils were introduced to the concept of Cyber Security and given the challenge of unlocking the code for a brief case that was at the back of the room. In order to crack the code, pupils had to work their way through a series of five tasks that had been left on their desk.
The tasks were significant and the pupils had just two hours in which to unscramble all of the information. A myriad of skills were required including visiting a sound editing suite to change the pitch and reversing a recording. The team work and buzz of excitement in the room was clearly visible.
Very well done to the Chantry School who were the winners in the morning sessions and to Bromsgrove who won the afternoon session, managing to crack the code thus saving the world from a Cyberattack.
