The Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative, in partnership with the Scottish Government, Dewar Cyber Consulting, and Abertay University, are bringing a new iteration of the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge to Scotland.
The Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge is a cyber policy and strategy competition where students compete in developing policy recommendations tackling a fictional cyber catastrophe.
Over 2 days, teams of students from Scottish universities and colleges will work together to craft actionable policy recommendations in response to a scenario that examines cyber threats to resilience before presenting them to a panel of industry professionals. Abertay cyberQuarter will host the competition on the 18th and 19th October.
This competition is open to students enrolled in colleges and universities based in Scotland.
- Location: Abertay cyberQuarter, Abertay University, Dundee
- Competition Date: 18th and 19th October 2022
