Last week, we at Cygenta had the honour of running a cybersecurity game for 150 teenagers at the TeenTech Festival London event at Emirates Stadium. With our Cyber City Crisis game we worked with the teenagers to consider how to better-protect smart cities. We were genuinely blown away by the extent to which the pupils were able to understand and articulate risk and make some difficult decisions about priorities.
Thank you to TeenTech, the volunteers, the teachers and the teens themselves for such a successful and fun day!
Here's what some of the schools had to say on Twitter
