#CyberFest, the North East’s largest cyber security festival, has added another event to the line-up this year in order to launch the NCSC CyberFirst Schools / Colleges Programme.

CyberFirst is a programme of opportunities to help young people aged 11 - 17 years explore their passion for tech by introducing them to the fast-paced world of cyber security.

If you work for an IT or technology company and are looking to support local schools in the region through Corporate Social Responsibility, then this event is for you!

The event is taking place on 29th September between 13:00 - 14:00. Details can be found at:

The aim of #CyberFest is to raise awareness of cyber security activities across the region to support the mission ‘To Make the North East the place for cyber security.’
