Help make all our futures a safer space

From the moment you wake in the morning, technology touches your life in all sorts of ways – some big, some small, some you may not even realise. From train timetables to calling a friend, life wouldn’t be the same without technology – so it’s up to us to protect it.

Businesses all over the world rely on cyber security professionals every day and with the UK’s cyber security industry now worth an estimated £8.3 billion, it’s set to be a career that will be in demand for many years to come.

Working in cyber security involves so much variety. The skills you acquire are transferrable and the salaries are excellent! And, you can make a real impact by protecting online identities, stopping hackers in their tracks, tackling cyberbullies, halting data breaches, cracking encrypted codes or even solving crimes by tracing digital forensics.
