Royal Holloway hosts Cyberfirst courses

Posted on 17/04/2017

Royal Holloway will be hosting Cyberfirst courses during August 2017, which are a key part of the UK government’s National Cyber Security Programme. 

All courses are carefully designed to bring out every student’s potential and inspire them to consider opportunities in cyber security.

Those who take part delve into how everyday technology really works; how systems and software that surround us are connected to each other; how information flows through networks; and how we can take sensible steps to protect our digital world.

  • CyberFirst Defenders (15-18 August 2017): A free four-day residential course aimed at 14 to 15 year olds. The course provides a valuable introduction to the tools, knowledge and skills required to build and protect small networks and personal devices. Click here to apply.

  • CyberFirst Futures (7-11 August 2017): A free five-day residential course aimed at 15 to 16 year olds. Ideal for students looking to study computer science at AS/A Levels, or equivalents. Students will explore advanced cyber security threats to devices, apps and software and investigate ways of protecting them. Click here to apply.
