UAE – Drones and car hacking, programming, cyber attacks methods and defensive mechanisms were part of the exercises given to pupils taking part in the electronic systems competition, aimed at raising cyber security awareness.
The UAE Cyber Quest Competition brought together 90 students from 110 mid schools and universities across the country.
The four-day event was held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). The competition seeks to graduate cybersecurity experts who will serve as the country’s electronic soldiers and front line defence – protecting the UAE from any threats – providing a unique opportunity for students to learn about data security through varied and interactive educational activities.
The annual event is organised by the National Electronic Security Authority (NESA).
