We are delighted to announce our programme of workshops that will take place at Cyber Re:coded this year. We have partnered with some amazing companies in cyber security and careers management to bring you workshops that will inspire and educate you and help set you on your journey towards a fantastic career in cyber security.
We are looking for great speakers for our upcoming Cyber Re:coded event this October and are welcoming ideas for talks, panels and workshops from those across the industry. Was your journey into industry unique or exciting? Do you have a fascinating day job that the world should know about? Know what skills it takes to succeed in cyber? We need you!
Cyber Security Challenge UK has launched Cyber Re:coded – a European cyber security careers show, taking place on 15-16th October this year. Backed by HM Government, the event will see thousands of people visit Tobacco Dock in East London to meet prospective employers, seek careers advice and learn more about the amazing world of cyber security.
To help celebrate the launch of Cyber Re:coded, we are launching a national competition. We, in the cyber security industry, often find it hard to explain what cyber security is. We would like you to help us explain what we do to the world.
