Outsource UK and Digital Interruption are partnering up to do something a little bit special. We’ve decided that we want to genuinely impact the cyber security industry and effect change by helping to bridge the skills gap and increasing cyber security awareness. We believe that to do this we need to start offering something valuable to the Cyber Security Community in the North West.
So... we'll be teaming up to host a Cyber Security meetup every quarter in 2018 starting on Thursday March 22nd. Each one will have both speakers on specialist topics and a Capture the Flag or cyber skills competition of some kind with prizes to be won and of course lots of Beer and Pizza!
We're starting to see a thriving Cyber Security community grow in the North, with conferences such as BSides Leeds and Manchester as well as lots of community groups. But there’s still a long way to go and we think it's important to help the North become the go-to place for these skills. We want to offer the opportunity for free learning and development for those who want it and support and mentorship from others in our network who can offer support and advice.
Our first event will be on Mobile Security and held at 111 Piccadilly, M1 2HY and if you want to get involved, give us a shout. But for now, watch this space for more info and upcoming events :)
