Already a tech hub, Manchester has become the centre of a thriving Cyber Security community growing in the North. With Ecommerce, start-ups and SME’s in need of skilled security professionals and newcomers in need help and advice SkillSec is helping to bridge the skills gap and increasing cyber security awareness to promote good information security and collaboration in the industry.
Working in partnership to bring SkillSec to Manchester, Outsource UK and Digital Interruption want to help business offer ethical and inclusive working practices and to promote environments that empower their employees in a way where both the business and the individual benefit in the infosec profession. With an array of security conferences such as SteelCon and BSdies, community groups such as Manchester Grey Hats and the Infosec Hoppers and initiatives such as the Cyber Foundry we want the North to become the go-to place for these skills.
Through our free resources and quarterly meetups we offer the opportunity for learning and development for those who need it, along with support and mentorship from others in our network who can offer encouragement and advice allowing experienced professionals can also give back to the community.
