Attending and Presenting at the 2017 National Conference for Learning and Teaching in Cyber Security

In April 2017 a number of Canterbury Christ Church University final year students and staff members attended, and presented, at the National Conference for Learning and Teaching in Cyber Security at Liverpool John Moores University. The two day Conference had a positive edge starting with the first day having been centric toward student presentations and competitions. It was great to see that a number of final year students from Universities in the United Kingdom working on some fantastic projects in a vast range of areas, such as web applications, malware, mobile phone apps and cybercrime. Many conferences lack this element to provide students the opportunity to step into the limelight, so it was fantastic to see feedback and questions posed for the students. Encouraging work and a fantastic experience for the final year students, as I am sure they would agree. It was also positive to see the vibe the student competitions provided at the event.

First Computing, Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity Film Event

IMG_1266.JPGComputing, Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity held our first film screening last Wednesday.  Zero Days was a great way to start, and the film, pizza and drinks were enjoyed by all in attendance.  We have got another event coming up on Wednesday 15th March 2017 starting at 15:00.  Students can vote for what they want the next film to be (see Blackboard!) and current front runners include The Social Network and Citizenfour.  I’m voting for Citizenfour (I’ve seen The Social Network).  I’m hoping no-one (ever!) votes for Skyfall which portrays Q as the worst cybersecurity expert ever when he plugs in a compromised machine to the MI6 network.  Don’t even get me started on how realistic Swordfish is and always remember they only made one Matrix film!

We look forward to seeing our students at the next event!
