The Partnership is supporting the Cybersecurity Challenge UK, a series of national competitions, learning programmes, and networking initiatives designed to identify, inspire and enable more people to become cybersecurity professionals.
The Challenge offers a unique programme of activities to introduce sufficient numbers of appropriately skilled individuals to learning and career opportunities in the profession.
It provides safe environments in which thousands of people can test and demonstrate their skills and showcases the spread of opportunities for future cyber defenders.
It acts as a catalyst for:
- Identifying those with appropriate skills;
- Inspiring them to seek learning opportunities and a career in cyber security;
- Informing them about available education and training opportunities; and
- Enabling them through the awarding of prizes as training courses.
