Our digital world is exciting, but it can also be a dangerous place if you don’t know how to protect yourself.
Learn how we are keeping our communities safe through innovative education, training and research.
The Cyber Trust was founded in March 2017 as the opportunities and dangers of the digital revolution were becoming increasingly apparent. Our vision was to help children and vulnerable people access the digital world safely and securely while at the same time enjoying the benefits of the digital environment.
Our goal is to advance the education and protection of the citizens of the United Kingdom in the area of personal cyber security through training, research and the development of individual capabilities, paying particular attention to those most at risk.
Our shared Vision is that together we will improve the United Kingdom’s cyber-competitiveness by increasing the number of people from diverse and non-conventional backgrounds choosing a career in the cyber security industry, raising awareness of online threats, and equipping vulnerable communities with the skills they need to protect themselves from those threats. A Partnership Board has been established to ensure good governance between the organisations, and we are working on joint projects and activities in 2022/23. Read more here.
