What happens next… CyberStart Game preview!
Awaiting students who meet the minimum requirements in CyberStart Assess is CyberStart Game; an online platform featuring hundreds of hours of real-world cyber security challenges.
You will take on the role of a security agent, gathering information, cracking codes, finding security flaws and dissecting a cyber criminal’s digital trail, using our in-tool resources, working together and researching techniques.
In Year 1 of the Cyber Discovery programme, 90% of students rated their experience as ‘good’ or ‘very good’.
Within CyberStart Game, you will practice security disciplines such as Linux, cryptography and programming as well as being introduced to challenging concepts such as buffer overflows, binary patching and SQL injections.

📝 Please note: These are some of the challenges from the highest levels of CyberStart Game. The beginning levels of Game are comparable with CyberStart Assess, gradually increasing in difficulty to develop your skills in a variety of subject areas.
CyberStart Game consists of over 200 challenges, and the amount of time spent engaging with the programme will vary significantly by player. Due to other commitments, some may attempt Game over several years; we do not judge ability based on the overall amount of time spent playing or engaging.
