The winners of the regional rounds receive cash prizes of up to $1500, and are invited to participate in the international final in June 2014. But even those who didn’t win at previous conferences say participation offered so many benefits, including workshops and master classes with Kaspersky Lab experts, lessons in security and public speaking, making new friends and hearing lots of original ideas.
Applications are accepted from September 1, so there’s no need to wait! Find the corresponding round for your region, choose an area of research on the conference website, and get down to work! IT security specialists are going to be in demand for some time yet, so becoming an expert in this area offers very promising career prospects.
