Our digital world is exciting, but it can also be a dangerous place if you don’t know how to protect yourself.

The Cyber Trust was founded in March 2017 as the opportunities and dangers of the digital revolution were becoming increasingly apparent. Our vision is 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.

We aim to advance the education and protection of the citizens of the United Kingdom in the area of personal cyber security through training, education, research and the development of individual capabilities, paying particular attention to those most at risk.

We have collaborated with the ITU Child Online Protection (COP) team, a specialised agency of The UN, since 2021 in the development of their AskMe App available from September 2023.

For 2024, we are looking to demonstrate, evaluate and promote differing family protection tools and to promote their use to protect children. We will promote family discussion regarding the risks family members face using online systems and services and will also provide information and video instructions on how to set up and manage some of the family protection systems currently available.


We have been recognised at The National Cyber Awards in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023, and were proud winners of The Not-for-Profit Team of the Year award at the Cyber Security Awards 2017.
