Cyber Attack

Cyber Attack

Next Steps South West are excited to announce a new collaborative showcase event exploring career and course options for students interested in business and computing using the scenario of a terrorist cyber-attack.

If you’re interested in computing, and/or business, and have wondered what happens during a terrorist cyber-attack then come along to this event where we will be recreating a real-life cyber-attack scenario.

On the day you will…

  • work with a cyber-security scenario which will follow a data attack in real time development throughout the day.
  • work through the day in teams to solve the case by taking on various roles within a company affected by a cyber-security breach.
  • discuss relevant courses and career pathways with college and faculty student ambassadors and academics who will be on hand to support the event.
