A pioneer in software security, Wilmington will clear the way for its first Cybersecurity Beanpot event on the thirtieth of October, 2018. Created simultaneously with the Suffolk University, the Cybersecurity beanpot evolved from both organizations similar passion to expand the importance given to software cybersecurity education.
Students from UMass Lowell, North eastern University, Boston College, and Suffolk University will join together to test their skills in an educational but fun live hacking contest using Security Innovation’s cyber range product CMD+CTRL which is the only cyber range that is dedicated to cybersecurity for development and software teams.
The student teams are pitted against each other as they will compete to find weaknesses and loopholes within the immersive and authentic Shadow Bank cyber range environment.
The president and CEO of security innovation Ed Adams, “We are excited to sponsor this event. There is a talent gap in cybersecurity. In fact, we recently conducted a survey of more than 400 executives that revealed the lack of skilled personnel was the top reason they cannot adequately defend against cyberattacks. With 75-90 percent of attacks happening through software, our goal is to make cybersecurity training fun and engaging for development and security teams alike.”
