Our Mission

We’re Unlock Cyber, a non-profit working group bringing together representatives from employers, educators and professional bodies to raise awareness of the critical future demand for Cyber Security professionals in the UK and provide support, advice and guidance for young people in identifying and pursuing a future in Cyber Security.

  • Identify how to work with schools and young people to provide activities and opportunities to develop their interest in Cyber and learn the necessary skills
  • Ensure a strong foundation for the development of employer-led activities to improve cyber education in schools
  • Set up  and identify regional career and training pathways into Cyber
  • Develop online content where opportunities can be accessed by students, teachers and parents
