Adarma Supports Next Generation of Cybersecurity Talent
Core to Adarma’s purpose is supporting people and helping to resolve the digital skills gap by encouraging diversity, inclusion and making a career in cybersecurity more accessible for all. As an organisation, we’re committed to helping build a fairer and more sustainable digital landscape.
We know that addressing the digital skills gap is going to be one of the most important challenges for our industry in the years to come and will be key to maintaining the UK’s position as a leading cybersecurity centre of excellence.
With almost half of UK cyber firms (47%) reporting significant problems with a technical cybersecurity skills gap either among existing staff or job applicants, we see the urgency to act and get involved in initiatives that encourage more people to join the sector.
As part of our commitment to nurturing the talent pipeline and making careers in cybersecurity more accessible, we’re delighted to once again be sponsoring “Le Tour Du Hack,” a student led cybersecurity ethical hacking event held in association with Edinburgh Napier University, that aims to educate, engage and raise awareness of careers in cybersecurity.
At Adarma, we understand how vital events like this are for raising awareness of careers in cybersecurity, for building a stronger digital community, and providing networking opportunities for people who are at the start of their cybersecurity journey.
Now in its fourth year, the two-day event is designed to support budding cybersecurity talent in developing their skills by providing them with an opportunity to meet and learn from seasoned cybersecurity professionals and to participate in a Capture the Flag ethical hacking competition.
Although the organisers, ENUSEC, a cybersecurity student society, are associated with Edinburgh Napier University, the event is open to all, student or not. Adarma team members will be present on the day and we welcome anyone interested in a career in cybersecurity or supporting functions to come and say hi and find out more about Life at Adarma.
In addition to supporting student events such as this and as part of our commitment to building a more diverse digital community, we are also sponsors of the ‘Empowering Women to Lead Cyber Security’ gender diversity initiative, which has recently expanded from Scotland into England.
