Cyber firm secures small industry champion award

A firm from Gloucestershire which specialises in helping businesses with their cyber security has been celebrated at a national awards ceremony.

Since early 2018, Cyber Security Associates (CSA) has been working with the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) as an industry stakeholder for the Cyber Schools Hubs initiative.

Through a number of inspirational leader talks, over 30 work experience students and the creation of the CyberPi Projects (www.cyberpiprojects.com) and the Cyberdea Immersive Zone (www.cyberdea.com) CSA has helped Gloucestershire students get a hands-on experience of cyber security.

And following the first-year success of the project, the NCSC staged its first awards evening to celebrate the work of students, teachers and industry stakeholders, hosted by Allcoopers, in Gloucester.

One student told judges that CSA had 'opened their eyes to the endless possibilities that they now have in front of them'.

"CSA was delighted to be the winner of the Industry Champion 2018 Small Enterprise Category, and to be awarded formally 'partner' status of the Cyber Schools Hub project," said a spokesperson for the company.
