Cyber Security Associates Ltd (CSA) is a Gloucestershire based cyber security business providing a wide range of innovative and affordable cyber services and products to both local and wider UK businesses.   

CSA recognises that there is a shortage of skilled and experienced cyber security professionals and therefore strives to invest in educating the next generation.  In December 2018 CSA launched the ‘Cyberdea™ Zone’, designed to provide a safe and friendly cyber training environment to encourage and promote a collaborative and teamworking approach to cyber security. Cyberdea™ can host up to 24 students to participate in facilitated CyberPi Project workshops, Cyber Offensive training sessions or Cyber Defensive training sessions. Additionally, Cyberdea™ offers the opportunity for students to be immersed in cyber technologies and principles that would not normally be available within their own educational environment. This hands-on experience provides realistic exposure of the cyber security industry and will help shape interest future career paths. 

Our exciting range of educational projects based on the Raspberry Pi computer have been designed to provide students a more immersive and hands-on experience when learning about computer science, programming, coding and cyber security. Our comprehensive teacher guides and student guides, along with individual build video’s enable students to meet specific learning outcomes and objectives. 

Both existing and new projects are all available on our dedicated website, where general information on each project can be found. Our 12-month subscription service provides access to all learning material and will also provide all hardware in a dedicated box to complete the projects. Continued access to existing and new projects is then offered on an annual recued subscription basis

Finally, CSA offers a dedicated 5-day work experience program and have currently hosted over 50 students. This has been a great way to get students involved in cyber security, and more importantly CSA has employed 2 of the students following their time on site.
