Cyber Crime Cup 2019

Blackphone Privy – Backing The Cyber Crime Cup

Wednesday 6 November, 2019

It’s almost time, the 2019 Cyber Crime Cup™will be live at the Etihad Stadium and the Blackphone Privy will be there! 

We feel this is one of the most important areas in the future of cyber security – the support and nurturing of the very best talent in the cyber security industry. These university students provide the base for the future of our industry and the Blackphone Privy. The next generation of smartphone security will rely on their impressive security and hacking abilities. 

We will be giving a Blackphone Privy Silver Edition Bundle to each member of the winning team worth £1800, to help entice and inspire more participants in to the competition. As a business very much involved in the protection of our customers’ mobile privacy and security, this event is key to us as a business and to our mobile security system development. 

We would encourage everyone to come to visit the event, see for yourself the amazing progress that is being made to help cyber security, meet some of the movers and shakers and those that in turn will help us to protect your mobile security.
