Kirklees College has announced its new level 3 Cyber Security Technician apprenticeship to meet the digital needs of businesses.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed working practices in many businesses and whilst remote working has its benefits, this has also created new opportunities for cyber criminals to exploit. As we live in an evolving digital world, it is more important than ever for organisations to understand the potential fraud threats they could face and how to manage and secure their systems to prevent such attacks.
The apprenticeship will cover how to deliver a security culture across an organisation, understand vulnerabilities and threats and support the development of an organisation’s cyber security plan, including how to conduct specific cyber security tasks in line with relevant procedures and standards.
As employers are beginning to assess the job market for this year, apprentices can offer businesses the opportunity to future proof their workforce and train their staff in the skills and knowledge needed to help the business thrive.
David Henderson, Curriculum Area Manager for Business and Computing, said:
“High quality apprenticeships are essential to business growth. Cyber Security has become a more prevalent issue for businesses, so this apprenticeship will help employers to address this growing concern by providing them with the opportunity to develop a workforce that meets the skills needed both now and in the future.”
The new apprenticeship is available to start now.
