The GSC team has just returned from a successful trip to Washington and Silicon Valley to expand its global reach. Here are the latest GSC security network updates:

1. GSC Tackles $1 Trillion Threat with Cyber Security Challenge

The Cyber Security Challenge competition is now live! We are looking for researchers and small businesses worldwide working on revolutionary information assurance and cyber security technologies. The importance of cyber security has been rising as the global cost of cyber crime jolted up to $1 trillion last year according to a study by McAfee.

Winners of this competition will win cash grants totaling over $12,000, sponsored by BAE Systems. In addition, the winner will receive exclusive mentorship from Nick Kingsbury, a security entrepreneur and seasoned venture capitalist at 3i.

The judges will consist of independent reviewers from government, academia, venture capital and industry. The awarding ceremony will take place during an event in Farnborough (UK) in mid July 2009.

2. New GSC Regional Events Announced

This year we will be holding additional GSC regional events around the world, in addition to our current events held in Washington DC, Brussels, Singapore and London. The new events will take place in Silicon Valley, Chicago and Athens, with hopefully more to be announced over the next few weeks.

3. VC Trends in IT Security - Forrester Report with GSC Input

Forrester Research just published a new report, called 'VC Trends in IT Security'. The Global Security Challenge team were interviewed as one of the sources for the report. For more information and to gain access to the report, please visit the Forrester Research website.
