KPMG Cyber Security Challenge 2016

The KPMG Cyber Security Challenge is a team-based competition for local public and private university students.

22 November 2016, 8:30AM - 5:00PM, MYT

KPMG Cyber Security Challenge – Overview

The competition tests the cyber security skills and knowledge of the participants in reverse engineering, steganography, cryptography, programming, network analysis, infrastructure hacking, web application security, and digital forensics. The competition tests the technical, analytical, and creative skills of the students, in addition to their communication and teamwork.

KPMG in Malaysia acknowledges cyber security threats in today’s fast paced and borderless technology driven environment, and the need for more skilled and knowledgeable cyber security professionals to defend our cyber shores. We believe that the Cyber Security Challenge will encourage stronger
awareness of cyber security among the younger generations especially students, provide them with greater insights into cyber security, and encourage them to pursue careers as cyber security professionals.

This year’s challenge will be held at The Vertical Bangsar South, on 22nd
November 2016. Participation is open to all local public and private university students who are currently pursuing a computing or information technology degree.
