Yocto Digital


Yocto Digital


The Yocto Digital project operates to achieve the following two main Goals:

  •       Cyber Skills: Inspire potential talents and bridge the gaps to create a pipeline for cybersecurity.
  •       Cyber Safety: Make people safe in the digital world.


The programme is aimed at people who are interested in gaining cyber and digital skills or simply wish to know more about cybersecurity - even with no related background or prior knowledge.  At our digital training centre, our operatives run a series of workshops starting with the Cyber Security Taster Sessions. During these workshops, participants have the chance to do some threat hunting and cybersecurity simulations on ‘real-time’ cyberattacks. Participants will then engage in a series of exercises designed to get them thinking like cybersecurity professionals.  Through the purchase of a Learning Management System we now have the capability to deliver sessions and courses both face-to-face and online.

The centre and the equipment are located at Sci-Tech Daresbury, Keckwick Ln, Daresbury, Warrington WA4 4FS.
