With one cyber-attack every 50 seconds and one cyber-attack on a UK school every 4 hours, cyber security has never been more important. The constant cyber threat to individuals, companies and nations makes it imperative that we seek to educate young people on these risks.
This assembly and supporting lesson will help to raise awareness of the issue and how the British Army is assisting in fighting these unseen threats. Students are often unaware that cyber hackers use apps and social media to gain access to their personal information. These resources explore the security risks and what we can do to protect ourselves from online attacks.
The British Army’s specialist cyber and electronic warfare capability is constantly evolving to counteract the threat from hostile nations and insurgent groups, and this workshop highlights these specialist cyber roles.
