CGI is bringing an escape-style experience to Wales as part of a UK-wide tour.
The leading IT solutions provider aims to educate local officials, businesses and students about online security risks in a fun and interactive way. Guests will team up to beat the hacker and learn how to stay safe online by creating strong passwords and getting familiar with device and document handling and navigating social media, among others.
Richard Holmes, Senior Vice President of Cyber Security for CGI in the UK said: “Cyber security is vitally important for individuals and businesses across sectors and industries. We all spend much of our personal and professional lives online, and it’s imperative everyone knows how to practice safe cyber techniques and can continue honing their existing skills.
“The experience has been designed to showcase the easy ways we can protect ourselves from several very real dangers. While we live in a tech-driven and supported world, the number of data breaches and internet scams we see in the news would suggest that much needs be done to help people protect themselves in a digital environment. We hope this experience will offer people a real-world opportunity to learn and engage with safe cyber practices.”
Lesley Kirkpatrick, CEO of Techniquest said: “We’re so excited to be able to welcome CGI’s Cyber Escape experience to our site in Cardiff Bay. It’s a great opportunity to not only promote the growing importance of cyber security, but to help everyone learn more about it in a memorable and entertaining way. That’s something that’s very close to our hearts at Techniquest as it sums up our whole approach: making important information about science, technology, engineering and maths really easy to digest and fun to engage with – so it feels like a perfect match for us to host the escape room here.”
