Dr Frank Stajano launched and hosted the Inter-ACE Cyberchallenge, a hacking competition between the country’s GCHQ-recognized Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACE-CSR).

The event was run on April 23rd at the Computer Laboratory, in partnership with Facebook.

Ten of the 13 ACE-CSRs sent a team of four students to Cambridge. In parallel, an individual competition was also run online for students who were not in their ACE’s team.

Cambridge won both individual and team gold. The winning team comprised Stella Lau, Will Shackleton, Cheng Sun, Gábor Szarka. The winner of individual gold was Dimitrije Erdeljan. All are undergraduates at the Computer Laboratory.
