Re:coding perceptions about careers in cyber security

Cyber Re:coded is a new cyber security event designed to show you exactly what a job in cyber security looks like and put you in touch with your future employers. It runs alongside the European Cyber Security Challenge, which is being held in the UK this year and will bring together the best cyber security talent from across Europe.

Cyber Re:coded is a two day event, held at Tobacco Dock on 15-16 October, will bring together over 50 companies looking for hundreds of future recruits, along with the newest cyber gadgets and technology and amazing speakers.

We would recommend this show for age 14+ but anyone is welcome. Young people aged 16 and under wishing to attend, must be accompanied by someone aged over 16.
