What is Cyber Challenge in a Box?

Many people are not sufficiently aware of the importance of cyber security and the incredible career opportunities available in this rapidly expanding industry.
Cyber Challenge in a Box (CCIAB) is an experience designed to introduce the concept of cyber security to KS2 and KS3 students (ie: up to age 14 or so), though it is fun for all ages. It can be played by individuals, but for students is probably best played in groups with a teacher / trainer /group leader. Over the course of an hour or so, students must sift through evidence, solve clues and finish puzzles in a race against time. The aim of the game – apart from thwarting an imminent cyber attack on the UK – is to inspire students to pick STEM subjects for GCSE, demonstrate the lines drawn in ethical hacking and give them the key skills they need to stay safe online.
We no longer offer the original physical face-to-face version of CCIAB. If you need any spares of the physical props, do get in touch as we may have some available, or can advise on how to source or build your own.
