CRACKING THE CODES - MATHS & CYBER-SECURITY
Watch on YouTube
Host: Matt Parker
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.
