What

On a CyberFirst Futures course, students will explore advanced cyber security threats to devices, apps and software, then discover ways to prevent them. The course offers an insight into not just the method but the motivation for cyber threat. Students will explore legislation, study typical behaviours of likely cyber attackers, and apply their understanding of how to protect networks. They will even learn to secure personal devices too – and how to do it for the businesses they could work for in the future.

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 Futures course have been certified by the NCSC.
