A growing number of organisations are getting involved in Cyber Champions

We are delighted to have such a wide range of public, private and third sector organisations supporting the Cyber Champions programme.

Partners and Stakeholders

Commissioner Adrian Leppard on Cyber Champions “The challenge with Cyber is that young people are already ahead of the game. We need to do all we can while they are still young to ensure they are able to look out for themselves and be safe in the online world.”
Nick Gargan, CEO, National Policing Improvement Agency on Cyber Champions, “It is absolutely right that we and the Association of Chief Police Officers should be supporting this initiative. The focus on schools is particularly appropriate and the engagement with young professionals is beneficial to us all including the police who are facing new and different challenges created by the explosion of social media.”
Jacqueline de Rojas, Vice President of McAfee International on Cyber Champions: “the internet opens our children to new opportunities and risks. McAfee is really pleased to be part of this fantastic initiative that is harnessing the power of volunteers to help children and young people get safe online in an increasingly networked world.”
Giselle Frederick: Credit Suisse Cyber Champion "Working with young people and helping show them how technology works is close to my heart so the moment I heard about the YPNGlobal Cyber Champions initiative I was keen to join. We have had tremendous feedback from teachers and students."
Andrew Fitzmaurice, CEO on Cyber Champions: “It is our role to ensure the digital footprint of young people is a positive one and that they are aware of not only the great power of technology, but also how to use it safely.”
Rt Hon Alun Michael MP cites Cyber Champions as “a superb example of the importance of older children acting as role models for the next younger generation.”
Pro Vice Chancellor Prof Heidi Macpherson: “A demo at our own Centre for Secure Computing showed me how easily computers can be hacked, so we jumped at the opportunity to help raise awareness in schools. We have a very strong volunteering ethos; this initiative has encouraged students to help in the local community.”
Ruth Hurst on Cyber Champions: “There is a requirement from Ofsted that school be more hands on in demonstrating what they’re doing within the area of safety, so there is a real demand now for this sort of collaborative activity. Universities are a natural fit.”
Stephen Kingan, MD says: “Whilst it is critical to educate kids to make sure they are safe online, it is also important for graduates to work in the community and develop themselves; becoming Cyber Champions gives them this opportunity.”
Tony Neate, MD, Get SafeOnline: "Cyber Champions understand that the Internet is an integral part of modern life and that teaching responsible habits at an early age is vital.”
Jonathan Soar, Master of the Information Technologists' Company: "The IT Livery Company is delighted to support the Cyber-Champions initiative. That support, delivered via our Security Panel, is focussed on helping them to identify financial services employers who will make their young professionals available to deliver workshops in schools as part of their own career development programmes, including education in the social responsibility values of the City."
