Advancements in technology have made everyday people ever more connected to the internet, and security is an important component to keep safe while connected. This Cybersecurity Beyond Borders project will provide you with an opportunity to work alongside students in the Philippines, exchanging knowledge and understanding the technological needs and challenges in cybersecurity. You will be able to develop and refine your skills and explore your career path in the field.

Cyber threats can attack anytime and anyone. Furthermore, organized cybercriminals often choose specific targets which may include the vulnerable population. This project will actively engage and support students from a range of study backgrounds by establishing a program that aims to empower them with knowledge through practical activities, engagement with cybercrime agencies and organisations.
