Northeastern University includes student hackers who take the first cybersecurity beanpot trophy. A pioneer in software security, Security innovation hosted the very first cybersecurity beanpot event in Boston on October 30th of 2018 at Suffolk University. Security Innovation and Suffolk partnered together to make this event exciting and designed to garner interest in cybersecurity skills and to motivate the development of educational opportunities to meet the increasing demands of the workforce.
Over 90 students from UMass Lowell, Northeastern University, Boston College, and Suffolk University tested their skills in an educational and fun live hacking contest using security innovations’ cyber range product.
The CEO and president of security innovation, Ed Adams said, “The first cybersecurity beanpot was a roaring success, and we’re thrilled to see how many students competed to test their attacks skills. Congratulations to all the winners. The demand for cybersecurity solutions is expanding at a rapid rate, and there is not enough talent out there right now to meet that demand. Security innovation is excited to continue working with universities to build excitement for cybersecurity education for today’s talented students.”
