The Special Advisors include:
The National Crime Agency
The NCA leads the UK’s fight to cut serious and organised crime, protecting the public by targeting and pursuing criminals who pose the greatest risk and focusing on critical cyber incidents. They work closely with UK police, regional organised crime units and international law enforcement partners.
As well as disrupting the current generation of cyber criminals, the NCA also wants to prevent young people from slipping into cyber crime, including by encouraging parents of young people with cyber skills to talk to them about their ambitions and the opportunities to use their skills positively.
The National Cyber Security Centre (CyberFirst)
The NCSC helps to make the UK the safest place to live and work online. Their CyberFirst Programme began by providing opportunities to help young people explore their passion for technology by introducing them to the world of cyber security. It now covers a broad range of activities: comprehensive bursary and apprenticeship schemes; a girls-only competition and schools development courses at UK universities and colleges. The CyberHub Trust is been awarded CyberFirst approved status.
