Cyber Scotland Week 2020 kicks off
Industry-led events set to spotlight cyber security.
More than 60 events are taking place this Cyber Scotland Week (17 – 23 February) to encourage people from all walks of life to consider a career in data security.
Organised by the Scottish Government and ScotlandIS, Cyber Scotland Week showcases innovation in the sector and the many economic opportunities in combatting the global cyber threat.
Scotland’s cyber company base has grown considerably in response to Scottish, UK and international demand, from around 50 companies in 2017 to just over 90 companies today.
Deputy First Minister John Swinney said:
“Cyber Scotland Week gives people of all ages the chance to come together to understand and learn about the threat and to hear about the wealth of cyber security careers opportunities. With over 60 events across the country, this Cyber Scotland Week builds on last year’s success and contribute to our ambition for Scotland to be a world leading cyber resilient nation.”
Cyber Scotland Week events are available at www.cyberscotlandweek.scot.
Events will consist of a range of events/ workshops/ talks on raising awareness of being safe and secure online, showcasing the innovative work that is happening across Scotland’s cyber sector as well as promoting a career in cyber security – an industry where there are many vacancies, not only in Scotland, but globally.
