CRACKING THE CODES - MATHS & CYBER-SECURITY
Watch on YouTube

Booking is not yet open

Host: Matt Parker


Cyber-security is a career with a future.  As data becomes more valuable, those who hold it need to protect themselves from others who want to steal it.  It's a game of logical cat and mouse, and the reasoning skills that maths gives you are an essential part of the profession.

There will be a puzzly, code-cracking theme to this show, and Matt will be interviewing a couple of professionals from Bank of America who are at the top of the profession.

Bookings will open soon.
