In this Computer Science online event for schools and colleges, we will be joined by Sally Earl, Tutor in the School of Computing Sciences at University of East Anglia, who will run an interactive session on Developing Secure Software.

Every system that a computer scientist creates needs securing. The global cost of cyber crime is in the billions, with businesses of all sizes targeted on a regular basis. This talk will explore how security can be prioritised when developing software, from the initial design phase to rolling out to the user. We will discuss specific security techniques, as well as best practices, for putting cyber security at the forefront of development.

Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but slides and other resources will be shared after the event, where available.


Suitable for: Year 12 & 13 students (and equivalent) studying, or with a possible interest in studying, Computer Science and related disciplines. Student groups, and individual students and teachers are very welcome to join us.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students may wish to consider the topic and discuss some of the key elements in advance. Students can also think about questions they have about studying Computer Science and related subjects at university level.

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans (similar to Zoom) and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard.
