This February, Highlands and Islands Enterprise is hitting the road to teach Scots how to outsmart online criminals and spot cyber threats.

Cyber Sense on Tour is an award-winning education workshop which will visit businesses, schools and communities throughout the Highlands and Islands. Fun, interactive games will allow participants to get under the skin of hackers and learn the tricks of the trade. 

Raising awareness of key cyber security concepts, innovative technology will take participants on a journey as they take the role of employee, cyber security professional and hacker.

Concepts such as ‘phishing and being ‘pwned’ will be explained and audiences will be taught to spot scams, dissect spurious emails and prevent hackers taking over their online lives.

Want the Cyber Sense Tour to visit your business or town? Get in touch here and we’ll make it happen. Look out for tour locations when they’re announced in January on our website at, on social media and in local press.
