Professor Kamal Bechkoum, Head of the School of Computing and Engineering at the University, said: “We’re delighted that Simon Jones from Ascentor will be the guest speaker at our webinar on 3 March for what promises to be another insightful and informative event.

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.
