CyberFirst Defenders is a valuable introduction on how to build and protect small networks and personal devices. It helps increase student’s awareness of cyber security, whilst also equipping them with a set of relevant practical skills they can apply in their own lives. Then we go a step further to help students visualise themselves in a cyber security career, guiding them to the technology-related qualifications they’ll need.
Each course will run over 10 half-day structured sessions where the content will be delivered in our usual fun and interesting way. Students will be automatically assigned either a morning or afternoon session when their place is confirmed.
This CyberFirst Defenders course have been certified by the NCSC.
