Over 1000 people visited January’s Cyber Careers Show at the IET in London to find out more about how they can start a career in cyber security.
The day was aimed for both those at the beginning of their job search who are looking for advice and information, or those curious to learn about the variety, rewards, and prospects of a cyber security career. There was also a careers changing event at night, with a panel discussion and informative talks and sessions for those looking to change from an existing career to the world of cyber security.
The Cyber Careers Show was a success with overwhelming positive feedback about the information and advice available – check out the highlights below:
