New Apprentices Join The Fight Against Cyber-crime

The NDA is placing apprentices at the heart of the nuclear decommissioning industry to help protect against cyber-attacks.

This is the first programme of its kind for the NDA. It is an important step in ensuring the sector is developing the right skills to tackle the increasing threat from across the globe.

9 apprentices have been placed at 5 of the NDA’s businesses across the UK as well as with the UK Civil Nuclear Constabulary (CNC).

Bill Taylor from the NDA said:

Cyber is one of the greatest security related challenges we face, something that has been recognised by UK government and our regulators.

Having high calibre people with the right skills to tackle this 21st century threat is crucial.

Our apprentices will join the existing cohort of cyber experts who will play a vital role in protecting our national security.
