The 2013 UK Cyber Security Challenge has been won by a 28 year old pharmaceutical chemist from Hertfordshire.
Mr Miller competed against thousands of other competitors via online and face-to-face challenges during the past year. Although he has no formal training in cyber security and currently works as a lab team manager at a pharmaceutical company, Miller was thrilled with his success: “It’s a result that gives me huge confidence to start applying this expertise to protect information and data in my own workplace”.
Stephanie Daman, CEO of Cyber Security Challenge UK said: “Identifying and nurturing this talent is vital for the success of UK PLC, as even sectors as seemingly unconnected as pharmaceuticals contain vital intellectual property that must be protected.”
