The SICSA Christmas Cyber-Security lectures are a series of lectures across the country in the week before Christmas for High schools. With up to 5 talks from leading industry figures, Police Scotland and University academics in one session it is a fun and varied introduction to the challenges facing all of us as we move towards the internet of things.

The purpose behind the event is to:
• Use light hearted and fun methods to introduce a career in Cyber Security to school pupils
• Address the skills and gender gap
• Raise cyber security profile through publicity generated by the lectures

Friday 12th December – Inverness College
Monday 15th December – University of Glasgow
