Event description

Description

On 2nd March 2017, the Defence Academy at Shrivenham is hosting a collaborative industry event: ‘Neuro Diversity: Autism Spectrum Condidtion into Cyber.’ This is an opportunity to hear from experts about the skills sets of those with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and how these skills could fill the gaps in Cyber. With a shortage of skills in cyber security, send your hiring mangers and yourselves along to this first of a kind day to grow awareness that allows your company to become much more confident in actively seeking out employees with ASC.

There will be presentations from the National Autistic Society, Government Agencies and private sector employers with experience of ASC. Presentations will cover interventions, recruitment and management in the workplace. This event is being run in parallel with an event for young autistic people (15+ year olds) with a view to exposing them to employers and vice versa.

There will be an opportunity for a proportion of employers to help the young people to solve a variety of exciting industry-led problems on the day, including Pen-testing with NCC; CMA with NCA and Researching with GCHQ.

Everyone will have the opportunity to have a tour of the tanks and armour at Shrivenham, with refreshments and lunch provided onsite.
