CyberFest is back for 21

The North East’s biggest cyber security festival is back again for another year, even bigger and better than before. It will be a fantastic demonstration of the region’s dynamic and exciting cyber security sector.

Throughout September we have fourteen events lined up with something for everyone, whether you work in cyber security, have been affected by it or are interested in it as a future career.

All of the events are FREE to join. All are online and a few are onsite as well. Tickets are available here.
