We invite the Cyber curious to Join Wiltshire Constabulary at the UTC Swindon 2nd March UTC Swindon 10 am to 14:00 hrs
One of the biggest cyber threats lies with “Social Engineering”.
Social engineering is a form of technique employed by cybercriminals designed to lure unsuspecting users into sending them their confidential data, infecting their computers with malware or opening links to infected sites. Once such data has been harvested, this can then be utilised to commit various other offences such as fraud. The world of Cybercrime is constantly evolving whether that be with a drone infiltrating airspace, emerging threats via the Internet of Things, a different strain of Trojan or Worm, to new forms of Ransomware or DDOS attacks and the increasing popularity of Cryptocurrencies – these changes contribute to an exciting working department within Wiltshire Police.
The increase in reported Cybercrime has had a significant impact upon Police forces nationally, all of whom are looking to enhance their cybercrime response capability. Part of the Wiltshire Constabulary recruitment and development process is to identify potential talent as “detectives of tomorrow”, tapping into the areas of Swindon and surrounding community that can develop, support, harness and nurture that talent and work together to create an environment where that talent can grow.
UTC Swindon has embraced the opportunity with the Wiltshire Constabulary team who will attend the open day on 2nd March. A new and exciting Cyber Security course is on the curriculum and is supported by Wiltshire Police and other corporate organisations who all recognise the importance of the talent of tomorrow and see the unique opportunity to identity, work with and support the UTC in training and developing students to become specialists in this area.
If you aged between 16-18years and looking to decide what next? we welcome you to discuss a career path in what is currently one of the biggest threats of our future.
