Major employers in UK cyber security and defence will descend on Lancashire next month in a bid to find the next generation of professionals.
The Cyber Security Careers Fair is the first event of its kind ever staged in the North West and will serve as a vital conduit for employers and potential employees to engage and discuss careers in the cyber security industry.
The event will be held at Lancaster University and run in partnership with security technology company Raytheon and the Cyber Security Challenge UK, who run a national set of competitions aimed at filling the huge gap in demand for cyber security talent.
Some of the country’s top industry leaders have already signed up for the fair, including professional and education bodies.
Organisations such as the Police E-Crime Unit will also be represented.
Dr Daniel Prince,the university’s business partner manager for security, said: “This is an ideal way for those interested in cyber security to talk to companies and find out what it is all about and how to get ahead.”
