Threats to cybersecurity continue to grow, and the global society needs bold ideas and innovations to address these challenges, said Lyu Yiping, director of the Keen Security Lab of Tencent, an in-house cybersecurity research arm. "It is an era in which the world we live in depends on network connections in everything we do… this is a team sport that requires building a community of people to manage risks," he said. Lyu made the remarks at Tencent's cybersecurity contest in Shanghai last month. The competition, known as Tencent Capture The Flag, is an occasion to attract the best young experts specialized in detecting software vulnerabilities and protecting systems from the threat of malicious actors.
