Several cyber security students at Edith Cowan University in Perth have designed a series of challenges (beginner, intermediate and advanced levels) on the topics of Cryptography, Steganography, Digital Forensics, Software Exploitation, Web Exploitation and Reverse Engineering for high school aged students. They will be running these challenges as part of a fun, semi-competitive event between teams from across Australia.
This year, the activity will incorporate a means for students to participate purely online, so the event is open to all students in Canberra. They’ll need to form their own teams, but support will be provided via Zoom to get them involved.
A practice event will be held for mentors/teachers and volunteers on 24 September, and the event will take place on the weekend of 10th and 11th October.
