“Hacking leads to the loss of trillions of dollars for companies and governments, and some of the most prolific hackers are youngsters.”

Cybercrime is a social pandemic

By 2027, the Global cost of Cybercrime will be

$ 0 trillion

That’s the equivalent of the GDP of the United States in 2021, and 2x the cost of Covid

It's a generational crisis

0 %

of UK teens polled have hacked before the age of 16

0 %

of NYC teens polled have hacked before the age of 13

The Hacking Games' Mission:

To inspire, educate and mobilise a generation of defenders to make the world a safer place

What needs to change?

The perception of hacking needs to be reframed from criminal to creative and constructive

Hacking has an identity crisis – it is perceived  as subversive, destructive, insidious, criminal and evil

A hacker wearing a mask to cover his face is using computer to hack data to get ransom from victims.

Originally Hacking was a creative mindset that deconstructed existent structures, identified weaknesses and improved them.  The iconic tech leaders of today all applied this mindset within an ethical framework such as Tim Berners-Lee, Mira Murati, Megan Smith, Steve Jobs, and Steve Wozniak
