Professor Kamal Bechkoum, Head of the School of Computing and Engineering at the University, said: “We’re thrilled that Chris Dunning-Walton from CyNam will be the guest speaker at our next C11 webinar on 7 April for what promises to be another insightful and engaging event.

“It will be a great opportunity to hear from Chris, one of the founding directors of CyNam, about the current and future work of this dynamic local organisation.

With Gloucestershire fast becoming known as ‘the cyber capital of the UK’, the University is the perfect place to study a wide range of cyber and computing degree courses and gain experience through placements, internships and its industry links.

The University’s purpose-built facilities offer computing and engineering students the very latest hardware, including Oculus Rift, HTV Vive and Motion Capture, while research labs provide an authentic environment in which to practice mock cyberattacks through a private and secure network.
