UK: CSC Launches Competition To Find Online Securty Experts [news.bbc.co.uk]
A national public competition has begun to find people with a talent for keeping computers and networks secure.The competition aims to find those with relevant analytical, forensic and programmming skills using web-based games and challenges.

Without more computer security experts the UK will not be equipped to handle rising cyber crime, say professionals.
The challenge hopes to encourage many of those that complete the games to take up a career in computer security.

"We are increasingly dependent on networks and computer systems," said Judy Baker, director of the Cyber Security Challenge (CSC). "The whole digital economy and society is structured around them."
