Pioneers Winners: Make Us Laugh Challenge

After months of planning and making, we’ve come to the end of the first cycle of our new digital making programme for teenagers: it’s time to announce the Pioneers winners!

We laid down the epic challenge of making us laugh. And boy, did the teams deliver. I can honestly say that my face hurt from all the laughing on judging day.

The judges

The aim was to find a group of judges with a varied mix of interests and skills. We were beyond chuffed to snag this awesome group:

Dr Lucy Rogers

Dr Lucy Rogers transforms simple tech into cool gadgets, science into plain English, and problems into opportunities. She’s a fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and author of the books ‘It’s ONLY Rocket Science‘ and the soon-to-be-published ‘Wiring the IoT‘. She’s also a Raspberry Jam organiser, a judge on BBC’s Robot Wars, and the person responsible for introducing Raspberry Pi-controlled animatronic dinosaurs to the Blackgang Chine Land of Imagination on the Isle of Wight.

Owen Daughtery

Owen Daughtery is a graduate of Raspberry Pi’s Creative Technologists programme and an enthusiastic maker. You’ll no doubt recognise him from our original Pioneers videos and his inability to say a certain phrase. When he’s not making videos for us, or for his YouTube channel, Owen is also a skilled magician.

Bec Hill

Comedian Bec Hill has a talent for incorporating arts and crafts into her stand-up routines, creating a unique and unforgettable comedy style that she calls ‘paper-puppetry’. She’s also creator of Pun Run, one half of entertainment duo Bec & Tom, and has voiced several characters for the newly released Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Maria Quevedo

Maria Quevedo gifMaria Quevedo is the director of Code Club UK. She’s amazing at yoga, cooks a mean Spanish tortilla, and originally hails from Argentina. She was also raised in a stationery shop, which is pretty much my dream. According to members of the Code Club team, Maria is delightfully calm under pressure…though she did fail to keep her cool when faced with judging the Pioneers winners.

The Pioneers winners

Winners of the first Pioneers challenge are…

After months of planning and making, the first round of Pioneers is over! We laid down the epic challenge of making us laugh. And boy, did the teams deliver. We can honestly say that my face hurt from all the laughing on judging day. Congratulations to everyone who took part.

Congratulations to the theme-winning team The Technological Tricksters and their project, Singing Potato. As Bec explained in the video, this project made us laugh…a lot. And through our tears of laughter, we were pleased to see the use of several different skills, along with a killer Gollum impression.

Alongside the overall theme winner, we also awarded prizes for the following five categories:

  • Inspiring Journey: the winners of this award experimented with a range of technologies, learned new skills and produced a final project that worked perfectly. Congratulations to Heritage Hackers and their Water Pistol Trap for winning this award.
  • Best Explanation: the team that hit the perfect balance of detail about what they made and how they made it were Black Thunder. We loved the explanation you gave for building your Living Joke Robot. Well done!
  • Technically Brilliant: the team that used the most impressive combination of technologies were the Shady Hackers with their Scare Chair Rig. Great use of a fire alarm hack…though we hope you didn’t use the home one.
  • We appreciate what you’re trying to do: making is a hobby which involves mistakes along the way, and it’s best to carry on without getting discouraged. Just because you haven’t finished, it doesn’t mean that you can’t submit your work to Pioneers and explain what you wanted to do and how. PiCymru‘s We Shall Overcomb did exactly that. We hope you manage to complete your project as we’d love to see it working!

Not forgetting…

Everyone was completely blown away by the projects we saw. And though we couldn’t award every entry a prize, the judges agreed that the following four projects deserved special recognition rewards for their teams:

Electrocuting computer mouse

Our mean boss wouldn’t let this one win (to be fair, we did say not to hurt anyone), but it genuinely made all the Raspberry Pi staff laugh which wins it a dishonourable mention from me. It was also a great hack of an electric fly trap. Well done Team Spark Wire…but maaaaybe try to be a little less lethal with your next submission.

And finally…

To everyone who took part in the first Pioneers challenge, thank you so much for your contributions, and congratulations on everything you achieved. You thrilled us with your tweets, emails, and final submissions, and we hope you also learned some great new skills and possibly made some new friends along the way. Massive thanks to our friends at the Shell Centenary Scholarship Fund for making Pioneers possible. Find out about their awesome work here.

The next Pioneers challenge is…

Shhh! It’s still a secret. We’re not announcing the new challenge until April, so keep your eyes on both the Pioneers website and our social accounts, and sign up to receive the Pioneers newsletter!

Until then, remember to always #MakeYourIdeas.

Patch Unlikely for Widely Publicized Flaw in Microsoft IIS 6.0

Microsoft recommends upgrade to latest operating system for more protection.
Source: Vulnerabilitys & Threats


Network security is a great undertaking early on. The benefits to protecting your network are immediate as well as beneficial in the long term. However, the systems and practices which defend your organization and its network are not a “set it and forget it” machine. As threats are continually evolving, so must your defenses. Don’t let complacency set in to the point where you’re relying on an outdated cyber security infrastructure.

One component of a security plan that automatically outdates itself is antivirus software. While it is not enough to use SIEM alone, applications which defend the perimeter of your network by scanning for threats that fit its stored list of definitions is still a valid tactic. These applications are good at deflecting many known bots and known threats, unless software updates for definitions have lapsed. Outdated software is responsible for 9.3% malware infections of non-domain computers.

Running expired software will give you a false sense of security. Fortunately, outdated software is a very straight-forward problem to fix. Some updates can be loaded to a central console and set to sync to the definitions server automatically. In cases where computers have applications which prevent changes such as public browsing terminals, machines must be unfrozen and updated individually. Don’t let time consuming tasks prevent crucial maintenance; rather you should budget for the time and schedule the work regularly.

The email server can be a floodgate for trouble if not managed properly. Malware is often the first step in a hacker’s plan to get a foothold into a victim’s network. Once an initial error has occurred, installing malware via phishing for example, the whole system is compromised. Make sure you’re using a secure email server. Have strong password settings in place. Most importantly, encourage personal responsibility for individual email accounts. Have a protocol for evaluating unusual emails and forbid account sharing.

In general, you should be continually evaluating your strategy and practices before you have an outdated cybersecurity infrastructure. Here are the kinds of questions you should continually be asking:

Have new elements been added to the network?
Are we making use of our threat intelligence platform?
Does your configuration account for traffic created by mobile users?
Are the most sacred files sufficiently protected?
Even if an employee accesses cloud data from an infected home computer?

Are permissions current? Are procedures in place to ensure all employees credentials and email addresses are closed after they leave? Some businesses only remember to close this vulnerability when an employee makes a dramatic exit.

Outdated education is a problem for up to half of enterprises. Old information about the types of tactics hackers are using is as useful as outdated virus definitions. It’s a shame to waste effort on training sessions, presentations, and meetings if the information therein is outdated, inaccurate, or altogether lacking key topics.

Polls show only 46% of employers offer more education than a one-time refresher course. In order to remedy this, educators themselves must keep up on current best practices. Attending conferences allow security pros to immerse themselves and can help renew enthusiasm. Workshops, whitepapers and webinars are great for getting a deeper understanding of new threats and ways to combat them. Following cybersecurity blogs and reading trade publications should be done continually for consistent awareness. Learn how to get the most out of your particular tools by soliciting as much expertise from security vendor partners as possible.

Employees need continual ongoing education. The stakes are high enough that making a case for starting an education program should not be a hard sell. However, if there is a pushback, there is plenty of evidence that preventing ignorance-based vulnerabilities is a wise risk management strategy. If user education is not deemed important, you should consider the evidence that resolving a hack is very expensive and can take your business out of the game permanently.

Maintaining your cyber security infrastructure is an ongoing responsibility. Like maintaining a house, it is best to be proactive about keeping everything in good working order. If there is a possibility of a vulnerability or possible threat actor, address concerns before they become crises.

ENISA’s Annual Privacy Forum

This year’s edition of ENISA’s Privacy Forum is organised in the light of the implementation of the newly promulgated General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the recent EC proposal for a Regulation on Privacy and Electronic Communications. Even the best legislative efforts face the challenge of keeping up to speed with the pace of innovative technology and business models that challenge the way personal data is processed and privacy is protected across the EU and beyond; therefore examining what is at stake and where threats thereto originate from becomes of paramount importance.
