McAfee Announces Major Partnership with Bletchley Park Trust
McAfee has announced a five-year collaborative partnership with the Bletchley Park Trust, to help in the preservation of this unique heritage site and develop it as a centre for educational excellence.
The partnership, the largest in McAfee’s history outside of the US, will see McAfee sponsor an international Cyber Security Exhibition and Computer Learning Zone, located in Block C of Bletchley Park, which is currently being restored and is soon to open as the new Visitor Centre,
The partnership 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 breathtaking 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 will see 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 provide e-learning strategies, advice and training.
“The Codebreakers at Bletchley Park during World War Two battled against the very real threat of invasion” said Sir John Scarlett KCMG OBE, Chairman of the Bletchley Park Trust. “Today, when we live so much of our lives online, it is vital to understand how best to remain safe in the digital world. Our strategic partnership with McAfee is a fitting tribute to the pioneering men and women who helped to shorten World War Two.”
