“CY2 are always looking for talented individuals, and University of Gloucestershire is a great talent hub for us. The Capture the Flag events are a great way for us provide the students with potential opportunities for summer placements, internships, or graduate positions.

Our Capture the Flag event at University of Gloucestershire was a great success, with students from the Ethical Hacking Society completing a series of tough challenges and enhancing their penetration testing skills. As a result of this event, we are lucky to have one of the students joining us for a summer placement.”
