Darktrace, a leading cybersecurity AI company, has announced that it has launched an internship programme in partnership with the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) CyberFirst initiative.
CyberFirst encourages young people from all walks of life to start careers in cybersecurity, giving university students the opportunity to work with key players in the industry. The placements aim to help create a workforce that is equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to tackle tomorrow’s security challenges and keep the UK safe and resilient against future cyberthreats.
The eight-week internship will give the students training in the foundations of cybersecurity, enabling them to see how AI is used to detect and respond to real-world cyberthreats, and will allow them to experience various cybersecurity roles within Darktrace from its offices in London and Cambridge.
“We are delighted to be welcoming our first interns as part of the NCSC’s CyberFirst programme,” said Toby Lewis, Head of Threat Analysis, Darktrace. “Cybersecurity is an exciting new industry which offers a range of stimulating and challenging career paths, and we look forward to introducing the students to some of these roles at Darktrace and give them a taste of what their future jobs could look like.”Click below to share this article
