‘The YCSC has allowed me to explore my interest in cyber security, given me invaluable exposure to the industry and continues to connect me with cyber security professionals within the region. My involvement with the YCSC over the past years has not only confirmed my career choice but has also enabled me to extensively develop my knowledge, skills and work experience within the field.’

Farnaaz Ghazaani MEng, BSc Computer Science with AI Graduate

‘I joined the YCSC in September 2020 when I started my career in cyber security as a way to build my network in the local community, since then I have met some amazing professionals who have helped me develop in the industry, been involved in various projects and even been given opportunities to give back to the local community by attending school engagement days and careers fairs.’

Anya Bridges Project Manager at Bob's Business

‘I joined YCSC after attending my first event at Asda House in Leeds back in 2019. I found the network of professionals to be welcoming, and the speakers to be very informative. I found it reassuring to hear our company experience similar challenges to others in the retail sector. I was hooked! I wanted to hear more around how my peers overcame the challenges I faced! After a couple years of attending, I felt I wanted to give something back - so I applied to be part of the steering committee.’

Mike Hudson Cyber Security Manager at Arco

‘I joined YCSC in 2018 to support efforts to grow the cyber security industry ecosystem in the Yorkshire area. As a platform for collaboration, knowledge sharing and networking it also offered opportunities to engage with the wider community. We are also keen to develop cyber opportunities generated by new technology solutions.’
