Burton college to offer a cyber security course for future tech gurus after students ace competition

Comments (0) 1

Young internet boffins from Burton College have won a major competition which tests website security. The students, who are all taking IT courses at the Burton and South Derbyshire College, had to show off their skills by ‘hacking’ into a fake website to show up potential security issues. During the contest, held at Staffordshire University, 20 teams from schools and colleges in the areas were tasked with solving a wide range of challenges set by the National Cyber Security Centre and Cyber Security Challenge UK. Activities on the day included legal hacking into a specially designed website to test account security, finding a security breach on a network and locating buried data . Two teams of IT networking and cyber security students from the Lichfield Street college used skills acquired on their course and were named joint winners of the competition. The college will be one of the first across the country to address the lack of skills nationally in dealing with hackers by introducing a cyber security course this year . Starting in September, the Level 3 Cyber Security course will include network management and digital forensics .

It will give students an insight into the industry to allow them to specialise in this field, said a college spokesman. More: Students celebrate success at annual awards2 He said the new course would allow students to gain the skills they need to understand and react to security threats on information systems, in an increasingly digital world. Jeremy Green, course leader of cyber security at the college said: “Cyber Security is in the news with the recent NHS exploit and exponential growth in employment opportunities, with over a million jobs globally going unfilled due to a skills shortage. “It was great to see college cyber security students make good use of the practical and theoretical skills they have learnt to undertake real world challenges . Nothing is more rewarding as a teacher than seeing students not only making good use of the skills they have learnt, but using those skills to gain competition success.”

How to stay safe online

Police have issued their own tips on how to stay safe online:

  • Having virus protection is essential, ensure that it is kept up-to-date.
  • Don’t click on links or open any attachments you receive in unsolicited emails or SMS messages . Remember that fraudsters can “spoof” an email address to make it look like one used by someone you trust . If you are unsure, check the email header to identify the true source of communication.
  • Always install software updates as soon as they become available . Whether you are updating the operating system or an application, the update will often include fixes for critical security vulnerabilities.
  • Create regular backups of your important files to an external hard drive, memory stick or online storage provider .

    It’s important that the devices you back up to aren’t left connected to your computer as any malware infection could spread to that too.

The spokesman said: “If you, or anyone you know, have been affected by this fraud or any other scam, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040.”
