Free Cyber Security Training
Wednesday, March 2nd, 10:30am-12:30pm
David Goldman Informatics Centre University of Sunderland SR6 0DD
Dynamo North East is teaming up with the region’s law enforcement agencies, universities and colleges to provide free Cyber Security training to businesses within the region. Beginning in March 2016, Dynamo will host six free training events on Teesside, Tyneside and Wearside to provide practical security guidance to organisations concerned about cyber-crime.
The training will focus on how to implement the measures promoted by the Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme. Adopting such measures significantly reduces an organisation’s vulnerability to the majority of common cyber-attacks. Businesses with effective cyber hygiene are less susceptible to fraud, extortion, theft of customer data, denial of critical assets and other forms of financial loss. The Cyber Essentials scheme is also now a mandatory requirement for new contract awards to companies within the supply chains of Central Government and the Ministry of Defence.
Wednesday, 2 March 2016 from 08:30 to 12:30 (GMT)

How to create fake Facebook profiles.
How do you get involved:
- Connect with another classroom. Just Google “Mystery Skype” or check out Skype in the Classroom and you’ll find plenty of eager participants.
- Pick a date and a time.
- Get your webcam and microphone ready. Don’t forget to do a test call to make sure your technology is working. If Skype is blocked at your school, try using Google Hangouts instead.
- Explain the game to your students by saying something like: “We are on a mission. We have to find out where this mystery class is calling us from. It can be from anywhere in the world, but we can only ask yes or no questions. They, in turn, are trying to figure out where we are.”
- Assign roles for your class.
- Go for it!
