From accusations of political interference to attacks on power grids, we can already see the impact cyber criminal activity is having. As technology develops, the attacks will become ever more sophisticated and frequent. Cyber security expert James Lyne asks if we are training enough cyber security experts to protect us from these threats.

Over the past four years, James and his team have been on a mission to break stereotypes, challenge traditional education and find our future defenders using gamification, problem solving and national competitions. At TEDxTruro James will open up the conversation about how best to protect our digital world and what we need to do to inspire a diverse group of young adults to consider a career in the area.
