Pupils studying S3 Computing Science or an NPA in Cyber Security, pitted themselves against cyber criminals this afternoon during a live online cyber lesson. The job was to defend a power station and along with 600 fellow cyber defenders, Alford Academy pupils worked together to protect this valuable asset. The session was run by Craig who is a computer scientist, Daniel who works for the National Grid as a cyber professional and Kirsty a cyber resilience expert for the Scottish Government. A very enjoyable session with lots of questions and answers all about working in the cyber security industry.
Alford Academy was due to be inspected from Monday 16 March 2020. On Friday 13 March 2020, Education Scotland informed us they are pausing all inspections until the Easter break. This is due to the changing situation with Covid-19 (Coronavirus) in Scotland.
We will update you when we receive notification of a rescheduled date.
