News, of the fifth edition of the Masterclass, a UK cyberwarfare exercise, held on board the HMS Belfast (one of the United Kingdom's five Imperial War Museums, and of course, in this case a former ship of the line, anchored on the Thames) comes to us by way of Ars Technica independent writer Emiko Jozuka.
"The competition, known as the Masterclass and developed by a group of cyber experts led by BT, is now in its fifth year and aims to plug the skills shortage currently affecting both governments and UK businesses. The competition essentially invites participants to put their skills to the test and experience a dramatized version of events faced by regular cybercrime fighting professionals. It also allows sponsors of the competition such as BT, Lockheed Martin, and Airbus, to hover on the sidelines and cherry pick the next cybercrime busting whizz kids." - Ars Technica's Emiko Jozuka
