Secure South West 15
Wednesday 23 03 2022 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Secure South West is a cyber security event that aims to connect industry, academia, education and local businesses to ensure a safer digital future for all in the region. Presentations and discussion panels will cover topics such as social media, business protection, innovation, skills development, women in tech and more. Returning for its 15th event, we will be focussing on inspiring ‘new blood’ in the industry. We will help you to develop cybersec skills, whether you’ve never touched a computer before or have code running through your veins.
Our mission is to arm the next generation with the tools and capabilities they need to transition from education to industry whilst also highlighting areas of innovation or future development. Therefore, the theme of ‘new blood’ will be represented by students, recent graduates and retrained professionals who will speak on their experiences and speciality to encourage those who want a future in cyber to start their journey.
Keynoting the event is Erika Lewis, DCMS Director of Cyber Security and Digital Identity; accompanied by members of the Skills Policy Unit, coming to the event to hear from grassroots about what works and to help advocate for what’s needed. Beyond this, Further and Higher Education staff, industry, training companies and careers organisations will attend to provide a broad perspective of the many and varied opportunities in cyber security, with special attention to the connection between education and industry.
