The Model

The CyberHub Trust operates with a ‘tried & tested’ Business Model

In addition to its virtual cyber services, the Trust operates a series of Secure Operations Centres, which are located within participating FE (Further Education) Colleges. These become cyber security Centres of Excellence, not only providing training, shadowing and work experience opportunities, but also providing local businesses with cyber security and cyber testing services, as well as local Community Outreach Programmes.

Service Providers will deliver and manage the Secure Operations Centres and provide services according to the four strategic pillars to the model:

The four pillars of the Cyberhub Model -  Community Outreach, Training, Work & Learn and Employer Services
Pillar 1 – Community Outreach
Advised by Law Enforcement, the Trust works with various agencies, companies and charities to provide services to both Individuals and Groups, from schoolchildren (5 years & over) and students, to parents and even pensioners, including individuals with Special Needs and Disabilities.
The Trust offers access to a wide range of courses, both free and paid-for, from Providers including AWS and BT, as well as Microsoft, Cisco, CISM and CompTIA via BluescreenIT.
Pillar 2 – Training
Pillar 3 – Work & Learn
The Trust provides opportunities for individuals to gain hand-on experience while simultaneously learning and acquiring qualifications, including Level-3 & Level-4 Cyber Apprenticeships. It also facilitates Shadowing, Internships and Work Experience, as well as Adult re-skilling, up-skilling and retraining (including for ex-Military Personnel).
The Trust, via College SOCs, offers commercial Cyber Security services to business (micro, SMEs & corporations) and charities. This can also include access to AWS Cloud Services.
Pillar 4 – Employer Services
