Join us in hunt for the cy­ber crim­i­nals

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

Thou­sands of young peo­ple across the north and north-east will be told of the ben­e­fits of a ca­reer hunt­ing cy­ber crim­i­nals over the next week.

The sixth an­nual se­ries of Christ­mas Cy­ber Lec­tures will start in Stornoway to­day.

It will head to In­ver­ness and Aberdeen early next week, be­fore fin­ish­ing in Glas­gow next Fri­day.

Sup­ported by the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, each ses­sion will in­clude talks from in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives and tech­no­log­i­cal aca­demics, with the aim of spark­ing in­trigue in the sec­tor for the next gen­er­a­tion.

Martin Beaton, cy­ber se­cu­rity clus­ter co-or­di­na­tor for Scot­land, said: “The cy­ber se­cu­rity sec­tor is suf­fer­ing from a chronic short­age of skilled pro­fes­sion­als, which is where our lec­tures come in.”
