CYBER LEADERS INITIATIVE
Cyber Leaders is Organised and brought to you by 7EA,
In partnership with African Society for Cyber Security Awareness
Cyber Leaders is an Initiative that is focused on tertiary level students and is geared towards educating and empowering them with the proper Cyber Security knowledge. It is common that some people only want to deal with a problem once it hits home or happens to them first. But why wait until something becomes personal first?
We want to plant a seed to ensure that more ethical hackers can help fight the good fight against cyber threats and help South Africa decrease cyber-crime rates.
With the help of our government and thought leaders on our side, we can surly build a White Hat Hackers Unit and prevent cyber-attacks on our country.
Our vision is to create job opportunities and prepare students to step into vacant cyber security positions ensuring that they receive job placements and that a difference is made in the cyber security community and that South Africa’s cyber security capabilities and landscapes are broadened.
Our mission is to educate tertiary level students to become cyber security leaders and encourage them with so much Cyber security knowledge that they will become ethical hackers and leaders standing up against cyber-crime in our country.
