Readers please note that:
Not all items published in the last week are listed for each news source, but note that when you click on an item, scrolling down it will also display the last 7 day’s items for that channel (if item clicked on has less than 10 articles in that period, then the last 10 articles will be displayed regardless of date)
A news source may be listed in more than one section if the different items cover different topics (ex.; ScotGov may be listed in General …. & Health, …. & Policy…. & Consultation …. & ICT …. and Business …… sections
We will try to ensure that we list at least one item per news source (if they have published any in the past week)
|Are teenagers 'game' enough to secure our future?|
An online programme designed to inspire teenagers to think about a career in cyber security will continue for a second year after a successful pilot across England.
Over 23,000 young people (aged between 14 & 18) have already taken part in the Cyber Discovery programme which uses interactive games to teach teenagers about cyber security in an accessible & fun way. Those who perform at the highest levels, will also have the opportunity to attend a special summer camp to hone their skills and meet industry leaders.The scheme sits within Cyber First, the government’s cyber security skills programme, which is part of the £1.9bn investment through the National Cyber Security Strategy to transform the UK’s cyber security and ensure we build skills in the workforce of the future. Any young person between the ages of 14 to 18 can take part. Registration & completion of the first assessment phase closes on 7 January 2019. Find out more on the Cyber Discovery website.
