HCCHackers are on GitHub!

Project Description

Cyber Security is a huge growth sector, with not enough skilled candidates to fill the job market. Our aim is to introduce students to cyber security and give them the skills, knowledge, platforms and networks they need to enter the sector. Using Avatao, students will take part in digital challenges / Hackathons, where they learn to break and for those interested, how to fix.

 

Students will also have the opportunity to speak to employers and universities about the industry and routes into it.

 

There are four sessions:

Session 1: introduction to GitHub, Avatao and Cyber Security.  Students will also complete some challenges as part of the Hackathon.

Sessions 2 and 3: employers speak to students and give a real-life example of when their business was hacked.  Students then role play, taking on the "emergency response team" and explore how they would fix the hack.

Session 4: students speak to university and cyber security apprenticeship representatives to learn about the different career routes into this exciting industry.
