New technologies are highly vulnerable to cyberthreats. As solutions become more developed, the greater the demand becomes for the next generation of cybersecurity support.

That’s why Kaspersky is driving Secur’IT Cup’19!

Solve issues affecting the three most significant industries of the future:

Finance – protect financial industry users and institutions by improving online fraud detection mechanisms, such as wipers/cryptographers and hidden mining

Automotive – improve smart car user safety by preventing controller area network attacks, GPS and other sensitive data leakage for both manned and unmanned vehicles

Machine learning – develop new methods to apply machine learning to improve cybersecurity technologies and narrow the damage caused by cyberattacks.

The competition aims to support students and young researchers who already have their own projects that will contribute to solving existing cybersecurity problems and dealing with the most advanced threats. Projects that can be submitted include a software or hardware solution prototype, a piece of code, a research-based policy, as well as many others.
