RuTC competition winner soars past experts in Cyber Security Challenge UK

Monday 5 October 2015

Daniel Galbrath, a student at Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC), has been announced as one of three Virtual Competition winners by Cyber Security Challenge UK (CSC UK). The competition aims to inspire future cyber security professionals and is open to EU citizens of all ages resident in the UK.

Winning the Virtual Competition means Daniel is now a contender in the start of CSC UK’s fifth year games series and is now hoping to gain enough points to progress to the final. CSC UK offers a portfolio of career-enabling prizes to the ultimate winner including memberships, training courses and candidate tailored experiences.

A delighted Daniel said “winning was a huge shock as I was competing against university graduates and people with specialist qualifications or training in the industry.” Last Week Daniel was in London’s Tech City sharing insight with Wired, BBC, Telegraph and ITV.

Currently, Daniel is studying an IT (Business) Extended Diploma at RuTC which he says “has been a real insight into how IT is used within a business, rather than at home.” After college, Daniel hopes to study Ethical Hacking and Network Security at Coventry University and is keen to work for IBM or BAE Systems as top innovators driving the security sector forward.

James Murphy, Associate Director of Defence and Security at techUK who sponsor the competition, congratulated Daniel on his success and commented, “Competitions like this challenge are vital to getting young people excited about the potential of a career in IT, and ensuring we have the skills to overcome ever growing cyber security challenges.”
