A group of Oakfield students attended a Cyber Security event at Northumbria University on Wednesday. We took part in a study investigating the knowledge of ‘phishing’ in young people and were asked to identify which emails were genuine and which were seeking information for financial gain. It was not an easy task!
We also heard from inspirational speakers from the workplaces of MI5 and GCHQ as well as local employers such as EY AND Sage. It was an extremely informative and engaging day, we even had free pizza for lunch!
