Anyone can be a cyberist – so long as they’re passionate, intrigued by technology and love computing. They could be a social media whizz, a gaming guru or straight up writing code: it’s simply about being in
touch with the modern world. A cyberist is dedicated to protecting friends, families and communities.
They’re keen to improve and explore the digital world. They’re our new generation of computer experts. They’re from all kinds of backgrounds, all over the UK. But they have one thing in common. They’re here to safeguard our digital future. And to find these cyberists, support them and train them, we’ve created CyberFirst.
