Raising cyber security awareness in Cardiff and Wales

A cyber security attack can target and affect anyone anywhere.

In the digital era, and particularly during the pandemic, when our society heavily relies on digital technology, it is critically important to ensure that the general public is aware of the dangers associated with cyber security and privacy breaches and know how to avoid and react to them.

This project, led by the National Centre for Cyber Security, aims to interest more young people, particularly from underrepresented groups, in the rapidly growing field of cyber security by offering a range of activities and events to secondary school and colleges.

The project will also raise awareness among local communities in Cardiff and Wales by offering free online and in-person sessions on topics such as online safety, privacy regulation and rights, social engineering, phone security, phishing and spam.
