SASIG Cybersecurity Skills Festival

The first SASIG Cybersecurity Skills Festival is closing the skills gap in cybersecurity.

13 May 09:00 - 17:00 BST

Add to calendar

There is a huge skills shortage in cyber, the major contributor being a gap between the opportunities available and those seeking them. We want to bring together these two sides, while celebrating our industry and the fantastic schemes and programs already creating opportunity in cyber.

SASIG’s Cybersecurity Skills Festival will be the first in a biannual series where we discuss skills in cyber and connect those looking for work directly with those looking to hire. The conference agenda is already packed with content for everyone from senior leaders to those looking to enter the industry. The jobs fair will be on a scale never seen in our industry with backing from public and private sector alike.


Best of all, it’s all free, for everyone…
