We hear about cyber security in the news on a regular basis and members of Birkdale’s Code Club, run by the Computing department, have been participating in the recent cyber security challenge “Capture the Flag” run by students from Sheffield Hallam University. This involved challenges testing cryptography, secure coding and on-line security.
Merlin Hancock (S2) was presented with a medal for best overall score. This was an outstanding achievement as the challenge is actually aimed at much older students. Alex Pilakoutas (S4) also received a prize and certificate.
