Application Deadline: 12pm GMT on 20 November 2017.
With recent cyber attacks on high-profile systems and organisations such as the Bank of Bangladesh, it’s more important than ever that our systems, critical infrastructure and highly confidential data are safe from potential threats and vulnerabilities.

The challenge

Taking in to account what the Bank has done in recent years, and with the ever-advancing changes in technology, we want you to tell us how you would apply your knowledge of cyber security and technology to help us meet our mission. Think big. Be creative. And showcase the skills you could bring to our technology teams.





Whether you’re studying at uni, sixth form, college or equivalent, if you’re aged 16+ you could win a paid internship at the Bank of England, during which you will have the opportunity to increase your knowledge of cyber security.

What do you need to do?

  • Your strategy and approach in a nutshell

What resources you’d need to get it up and running
