Education and Outreach Project

Helping to develop the next generation of cyber and digital talent across South East Wales

A collaboration between:

The National Digital Exploitation Centre (NDEC) is a joint project between the Welsh Government, multi-national technology company Thales, and the University of South Wales. It aims to catalyse economic regeneration and digital growth across the region through technology and cyber security support.

The NDEC education project sits within this to address the skills requirements of digital growth; we work with schools and communities to develop outreach and resources, which support people into cyber security and wider digital industries. We also deliver free cyber security training to SMEs across South East Wales, to support their own digital growth.

Support for schools

We support schools and educational groups to learn about the cyber industry in Wales, to raise student aspirations and help fill skills gaps. This includes resources, CPD, support running cyber initiatives and competitions, and a programme of events and workshops.

Work with communities

We collaborate with local organisations to help make the cyber security and wider digital industries in Wales accessible to all. This also includes promoting the cyber industry as an important employer within Wales.

Training for SMEs

We deliver free training to Welsh SMEs in basic cyber security principles, in order to support their digital growth.
