19-Year-Old British Student Wins Cyber Security Competition


A 19-year-old U.K. student has been named the “Cyber Security Champion” after winning a competition showcasing Internet security intelligence.

Jonathan Millican won the award after a six-month-long challenge designed to attract talented people to the cyberdefense industry.

Judges at the competition said Millican had demonstrated knowledge “years beyond his time” of the subject. He won the competition after taking part in a final series of challenges hosted by HP Labs, which pitted six five-person teams against each other on Saturday.
