Continuous innovation in Internet technology development and applications has enhanced the quality of life and work efficiency but at the same time has created various new cyber security challenges. It only serves to fuel the demand for cyber security professionals. To cope with the challenges, the training of local cyber security practitioners and nurturing of new generations are indispensable.
For the new generation, Technology Education (TechEd) could foster and enhance their knowledge and interest in cyber security, train up their creative thinking, and learn skills such as cryptography, programming concept, network forensics to cope with new challenges.
For existing cyber security practitioners, regular update of latest trends and enhancement of cyber security skills can help organisations to reduce the risk and improve incident response capability.
In light of this, the Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre (HKCERT) and the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) , and Professional Information Security Association (PISA) as one of the Co-organisers, will jointly organise the “Hong Kong Cyber Security New Generation Capture the Flag (CTF) Challenge 2023” (The Contest) to strengthen the cyber security skills and awareness of the industry and students and encourage problem solving through teamwork, creative thinking and cyber security skills.
Workshops by cyber security experts will be organised to help the participants understand the format and type of questions of the Contest and get prepared for it.
The seminar will cover: A. Challenges and opportunities –The security market is now emerging fast. What are the current challenges of smart applications in the security industry, B. and what are the opportunities of deploying Smart Security & Operation Management?

Gartner research shows that 80% of CEOs are increasing digital technology investments to counter current economic pressures, including inflation, scarce talent and supply constraints. Of course, CIOs and other technology executives will be tasked with executing digital IT strategy. Despite many in-progress digital initiatives, few are yet delivering the digital dividends that senior leadership expects.
As technology becomes the key differentiator for all organizations operating in the digital-first world, the spotlight is being shone on the technology leadership function. Carrying the theme of “Defining Technology Leadership in a Digital-first World’’, this premier annual CIO event will bring together 150+ CIOs, Digital and Business executives to discuss strategies and plans in driving digital transformation and to showcase how game-changing CIOs and tech leaders are building and securing the next-generation agile digital enterprises to accelerate growth.
