Event description
Year 10/11 Cyber Security Taster Day @UCLan Thursday 19th December

About this Event

In today's interconnected world, cyber security has never been more important. Cyber criminals work hard to identify flaws in our networks in order to steal our money, identity and personal information. The cyber security sector is facing a significant skills gap at a time when threats and the legal and commercial consequences of inadequate security are increasing.

The sessions are open to years 10 and 11. We only have 30 spaces available, 10 spaces per school.

Your students will learn:

• How computer coding can be manipulated by malicious hackers with just a few mouse clicks

• How computers can be protected from malicious individuals to safeguard our privacy, money and data

• How hackers leave ‘digital fingerprints’ that can be tracked by law enforcement agencies and brought to justice

Come to UCLan and get hands-on experience in the role of an ethical hacker, a chief security officer, and a mobile phone investigator and experience for yourself what Cyber Security involves.

Delivered by current UCLan cyber security academics, our ‘Cyber Security’ taster day is based upon UCLan’s ‘Cyber Security’ undergraduate course and will give your student a taste of what it would be like to study a degree here at UCLan.
