"I explored in-depth how easily cyber criminals can gain access to your data and the techniques they use, and I learned valuable skills that go way beyond GCSE and A-Level.CyberStart Game Student
Focus on essential parts of your cyber security knowledge. Students with no previous experience or interest have gone on to master techniques such as binary reversing, SQL injection, buffer overflows and XXS.
Work your way through 200 challenges across three exciting bases. HQ base is where you'll be solving puzzles and learning techniques like code breaking, command line basics and binary reversing. Moon base where you'll be executing and running code through your own code editor. And finally Forensics base where you'll be learning essential concepts and ideas cyber agents apply when dealing with the aftermath of a cyber security attack.
Build up your profile and earn badges as you play. Get awarded the ‘Speedster’ badge when you complete a challenge in under 30 seconds, or the ‘Firestarter’ when you unlock Volcano base!
