MCAFEE LAUNCHES CYBERSECURITY EXHIBITION AND COMPUTER LEARNING ZONE
The partnership – the largest in McAfee’s history outside the US – brings together two organisations highly committed to keeping people of all ages safe online. Workshops will be run at the new Computer Learning Zone to engage, inspire and educate visitors about the ever-evolving cyber threat. Children and adults alike will learn how the breath-taking achievements of the World War Two Codebreakers remain relevant today.
The onsite learning will be supported by McAfee’s Online Safety for Kids programme, which currently sees McAfee staff volunteer to teach safety courses and provide schools, children, and parents with helpful tips and information on safely navigating cyberspace. In addition, McAfee is sponsoring an Online Safety Education Officer, who will deliver McAfee’s Online Safety for Kids programme to schools that attend Bletchley Park alongside providing e-learning strategies, advice and training.
“McAfee is incredibly proud to be working alongside such a vital part of British and world history,” said Ross Allen, vice president of UK & Ireland at McAfee, part of Intel Security. “McAfee works tirelessly to protect against ever-increasing online threats and working with Bletchley Park Trust allows us to make a real impact on the cybersecurity education of visitors young and old.”
Iain Standen, CEO at Bletchley Park Trust said “With McAfee’s help, we hope to inspire the next generation of potential Codebreakers and cybersecurity experts to keep us safe in the digital world.”
