Mazars partnership with CENSIS supports students’ diversity in the cyber security industry

Mazars has selected three delegates to participate in a national ethical hacking exercise in association with CENSIS Scotland’s Innovation Centre for sensors, imaging systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.

This marks the second year of Mazars and CENSIS’ collaboration, which is designed to give students from a diverse range of backgrounds and undergraduate disciplines the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with some of today’s most challenging cyber security issues.

Mazars’ delegates, who are also part of the National Cyber Security Centre’s CyberFirst programme, will participate in a two-day programme of ethical hacking exercises. The exercises have been developed by CENSIS’s engineers to better understand the vulnerability of IoT systems to potential cyber-attacks. Participants will be asked to identify vulnerabilities in the system and suggest areas of improvement.
