In an era dominated by digital interconnectedness, the term “cyber security” has become a household concern. It’s not just a buzzword for tech enthusiasts or IT professionals; it’s a critical aspect of our daily lives. Cyber security is the practice of protecting computer systems, networks, and data from theft, damage, or unauthorized access. In simpler terms, it’s like the digital lock and key that safeguard our virtual existence.

Imagine your online presence as a fortress, and cyber security as the set of defenses that shield this fortress from unseen threats. Just as you secure your home with locks and alarms, your digital life requires protection against a range of potential hazards. These hazards, often referred to as cyber threats, can include malicious software (malware), phishing attempts, hacking, and more.

One of the fundamental concepts in cyber security is confidentiality, ensuring that sensitive information remains private. This could be your personal data, financial information, or even classified business strategies. Integrity is another key principle, ensuring that data remains unaltered and trustworthy. The third pillar is availability, ensuring that information is accessible when needed without compromise.



Cyber security is a dynamic field because, just like technological advancements, cyber threats evolve rapidly. New forms of attacks emerge, and cyber security measures must adapt to protect against them. It’s a constant cat-and-mouse game between those seeking to exploit vulnerabilities and those striving to fortify digital defenses.




Whether you’re using a smartphone, making online purchases, or managing your social media accounts, you are a stakeholder in the realm of cyber security. Awareness and basic cyber security hygiene are essential for everyone, from updating software regularly to creating strong, unique passwords.

In this interconnected digital age, understanding the basics of cyber security isn’t just an option; it’s a necessity for safeguarding our digital identities and maintaining a secure online environment.

We recognise that cyber security skills are a fundamental aspect of digital literacy in the modern era. They empower young people to navigate the digital landscape safely, contribute to a secure online environment, and prepare for meaningful careers in a technology-driven world.

We will be delivering cyber security workshops to Secondary School groups, helping develop their understanding of the online threats they face and how to counter them.
