Students looking to make £2,500? GCHQ has the cyber summer school for you
GCHQ has announced a ten-week ‘cyber insiders summer school’ for aspiring white hat hackers, the latest attempt by the Government security organisation to uncover the next generation of British cyber-talent.
Due to be held between 6 July and 11 September in GCHQ’s home town of Cheltenham, the ten-week course will be open to any student in year one or two of a University computer science course with the incentive of being paid £2,500 ($3,800) to attend. GCHQ will also cover the cost of accommodation in the town and hand candidates completing the course a CV-boosting certificate.
