We are delighted that Professor Kevin Jones, Plymouth University’s Dean of Science and Environment will open the day’s activities: welcoming businesses showcasing careers, cyber surgeries and networking opportunities for attendees from regional and UK cyber community.

After a day’s activities, there will be a B2B conference The Cyber Hub: Why Apprenticeships: An employer’s view to network and hear e-skills Apprenticeship Lead, Mark Heholt’ s opening talk about the UK frameworks and how South West businesses can be supported into delivering inspiring future apprenticeships, showing presentations from trainers and industry to guide you.

Other panel contributors include:

Stands and activities include:
  • Regional and UK Industry stands: showcasing cyber roles and training into them.
  • Cyber Security Challenge: stand run by past/present candidates to talk about their experience of the competition process for those wanting to have a go, with opportunities to see a past virtual game and a tool kit for beginners.
  • Cyber ‘Surgeries’: to engage all, from helicopter hacking to the latest personalised ID Cards and a card game to make you think about how cyber is a thought process and not just an electronic medium.
  • Apprenticeships into IT and cyber security explained: 15 minute Q&A, a chance for the student and the regional business to ‘interface’ to the UK wide framework support.
  • Enigma Machine: Bletchley Park demonstrates a real, working Enigma machine, providing drop-in activity sessions.
