Today, cyber security is headline news and touches every corner of society. Equipping students with an appreciation of issues in cyber security is fundamental to the development of a public that is both engaged with technology and the risks associated with it.
At the Secure Futures event, students will crack codes and write ciphers, learn about how businesses calculate risk and protect information and hear from cyber students and professionals about how exciting and lucrative cyber careers can be.
This event will not only teach young people how to stay safe online. They will also make the link between the techniques they can use to ensure their own safety, and those used by government and business to protect the nation from cyber threats
Teachers will be given access to a suite of free resources including online cyber games that will help students consolidate their learning back at school.
This event is a collaboration between Warwick University and e-skills UK.
