The world is currently facing a shortage of individuals who are educated in various aspects of cybersecurity. With massive volumes of sensitive data being stored and transferred online these days, this shortage can present a real problem when it comes to security. In order to combat this shortfall, thousands of UK based teenagers are set to participate in cybersecurity clubs across the country.
The Cyber Schools Programme is designed for teenagers between 14 and 18 years of age. Preference will be given to 14 year olds who can commit four hours weekly while being able to complete the full four year programme. The programme will target those individuals who demonstrate a passion and talent for cybersecurity, while providing them with skills for the purpose of protecting businesses against online threats in today's highly digital landscape. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from a number of experts in the cybersecurity field.
