Watch Matt Parker as he explores the world of cyber-security with Alison Kiddle, James Grime and guests from Bank of America.

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 will explain how they got into the profession.

Fee: £30+VAT per school

This show was broadcast live on Youtube on March 24th 2021. A recording of the show will be available for up to one month after the show.
