Fight virtual crime at FREE Cyber Security Workshop9th February 2017
Tech-savvy teenagers can learn all about how to defend against cyber attacks at a FREE cyber security workshop, Saturday, March 4, 9:30am - 12:30pm, at SGS College’s Berkeley GREEN Campus.
Workshop participants will discover the methods used by cyber security firms to stop hackers from illegally gaining access to private information from companies and individuals.
This workshop is an ideal introduction into one of the fastest growing and most profitable industries in the UK, where skilled workers are in hot demand. The government is to spend £1.9bn over the next five years on cyber-defences, recruiting thousands of new staff across the three intelligence agencies and establishing the first National Cyber Centre.
Previous cyber security workshops have been hugely popular so SGS recommends applying early to secure a place.
Sara-Jane Watkins, Principal of SGS College comments:
“This course is a fantastic introduction into a rapidly growing industry. It’s also great fun, programming robots, defending yourself against computer hacks and much more.
“The workshop is also a great opportunity for leaners to see whether they would like to study for a career in cyber security. Students don’t have to be ultra computer savvy; employers are looking for great problem solvers, strong communicators, and quick thinkers.”
The free cyber security workshop at Berkeley GREEN takes place Saturday March 4 2017, 9:30am - 12:30pm and is open to all Year 9 (ages 13 & 14) & 11 (ages 15 & 16) learners. Free refreshments will be provided.
