Hacking Lab Tender

  • UK small firms are hacked every 19 seconds*
  • UK Cyber security industry is valued in excess of £8bn per year*

Help us find the next generation of cyber security talent

£100,000 of funding is now available to create a new 'hacking lab' for the West Midlands. 

As a centre of excellence on cyber security, the lab will educate, innovate and inspire students from across the region in a fun and highly interactive way.

The project aims to give students:

  • the basics of cyber offense and defence
  • hands on practice on the most popular hacking techniques
  • how to apply knowledge of hacking methods to cyber security 
  • an insider perspective on cyber security
  • the most common cyber attacks

To help us make this happen:

You will already be an organisation, education/training provider or social enterprise committed to educating 16-19 year olds in the region, but with a desire to make this ambition a reality.
