We support our mission by working to cultivate the next generation of cybersecurity experts and to educate people to stay safe online
Cybersecurity is growing in importance, but the sector faces a critical skills shortage. We are partnering with universities and organizations to encourage the best and the brightest men and women from around the world to choose a career in cybersecurity - and start solving tomorrow’s security problems, today.
The internet is part of everything we do - and the more you know about how your data is being used, what content your children might access, and how to understand potential threats, the better. We’re using our expertise to educate and empower people to keep themselves and their families safe online.
Teaching kids to
“Be Safe Online”
We have teamed up with YouTube celebrity Jirka Kral, visiting schools throughout the Czech Republic to educate children, teachers, and parents about how to be safe online in the digital world. Everyone is having fun while learning a lot about how to stay safe on social media and while playing online games, and how to protect their own privacy. We are visiting a school in every region throughout the country during 2018.
Partnering with the Science Museum in London for its cybersecurity exhibition
We believe it is important to understand the history of cybersecurity in order to learn from it and better protect the world from threats. Therefore, we have teamed up with London’s Science Museum as a principal sponsor for its ‘Top Secret: From Ciphers to Cyber Security’ exhibition running until February 2020.
