Empowering the Next Generation: The Cyber Youth Programme 2023 Engages 1000 Students in Integral Cybersecurity Training
The Cyber Youth Programme 2023, hosted by Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited (HKIRC), has successfully concluded, achieving its purpose of enhancing cybersecurity awareness and skills among young talents. Building on the tremendous success of the past two years, the "Cyber Youth Programme" received overwhelming support and participation from the academic community and society. This year's competition attracted nearly 80 secondary schools and engaged around 1000 students.
As a co-organiser, IVE IT provided pre-competition training to the participating students. They had the opportunity to acquire fundamental knowledge in network security, learn techniques to prevent network attacks, identify common website vulnerabilities, and develop website vulnerability discovery skills through experiencing series of training exercises offered by our Cybersecurity Centre.
The event was a resounding success, fostering a deeper understanding of cybersecurity and equipping the next generation with crucial skills to navigate the digital landscape securely. Together, we are building a stronger and more resilient digital future!
