Who We Are
Cyber M8 is a cybersecurity skills development programme developed by Biz M8 in collaboration with Abuti Rams Consultancy (ARC). The programme was established in 2017 aimed at addressing the minimal cybersecurity knowledge and explore the best practices amongst youth by empowering them with relevant cybersecurity skills.
What We Do
Cyber M8 features a series of several interventions which further seeks to expose participants to opportunities within cyber security and ICT industry at large. Principal to the implementation of this programme is the mass public awareness and participation within cyber security and ICT sector at large. This will be done in a form of capacity building workshops within one province in South African rural and township communities.
The key objectives of the workshops are to:
- Increase awareness on cyber security amongst the youth;
- Conscientise and expose out-of-school youth to employment opportunities within the cyber security sector; and
- Capacitate SMMEs with relevant skills within the cyber security to participate meaningfully in the local economic growth.
