HKIIT and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (CPST) signed an MoU to address the growing demand for cybersecurity talent. Our collaboration aims to groom IT talent with the essential and latest cybersecurity skills and knowledge. HKIIT will offer upskilling/reskilling programmes to empower CPST staff with the latest digital skills. On the other hand, Check Point will provide professional training and employment opportunities to IT discipline students. Together, we will co-organise cybersecurity education activities to enhance public awareness and foster expertise in this field.
It is with great pleasure that we welcomed Mr. Baron CHAN, Superintendent of Police, Cyber Security Division, Cyber Security and Technology Crime Bureau of the Hong Kong Police Force, as our Guest of Honour for the MOU signing ceremony and the “Inter-school Cybersecurity Competition 2023”.
The "Inter-school Cybersecurity Competition 2023” has garnered significant attention, attracting over 200 students to participate and showcase their skills and knowledge. Students were challenged to leverage Check Point's platform to identify crucial clues and gain insights into hackers' attack patterns. It was a highly competitive event, testing analytical skills, problem-solving abilities, and teamwork spirit.
HKIIT and Check Point are excited about future collaborations and the positive impact we will create together in the realm of cybersecurity. Stay tuned for more updates!
