Cyber Security Festival

6th July

Run by Tablet Academy at the RAF Museum Cosford

The workshop is aimed at KS3 and we would like to offer places to 5 students per school.

Tablet Academy have partnered with Cyber Security Challenge UK and Northrop Grumman to offer secondary schools the opportunity to take part in a free Cyber Security Festival. These events offer teachers and pupils the opportunity to learn about the importance of Cyber Security and how you can develop your own skills to decipher encrypted messages and defend against cyber-attacks.

What can you expect from a Cyber Security Challenge Festival?

Through a themed workshop designed for Years 7, 8 and 9, pupils will be introduced to the world of Cyber Security, including the reality of the threats we face on a daily basis and the skills required to help defend our way of life. Working in groups, pupils will work against the clock to stop a simulated cyber-attack. Successful groups will need to work as a team to decipher hidden messages, analyse evidence and decrypt files to identify the individual behind the attack.

Schools can choose between a morning session 9.30 till 12.15 or the afternoon session of 1:00 till 15:30.
