Posted on Updated on

An outdoor screening of the award-winning film, Bohemian Rhapsody (12A), is coming to Halifax later this year.

The Shay Stadium will host the Cinema Under the Stars event on Friday 17 May, 7:00pm.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound and culminates in their iconic performance at Live Aid.

Cyber Resilience Workshop at The Shay Stadium

Posted on Updated on

Are you a small to medium enterprise, operating in the Halifax area?

Is cybercrime something that concerns you?

Are the majority of cyber events and support in larger cities and out of reach?

If so, the Yorkshire Cyber Project is delighted to extend an invitation to you for a short but engaging and valuable cyber learning experience at The Shay Stadium on Thursday 14 June, 2:00pm-4:00pm.

By using specially designed, state of the art technology you will be able to ‘play’ at experiencing various types of cyber-attacks and learn the best way of dealing with them. There are a range of scenarios; you will use the ones that address the issues that are most important to your business. The scenarios are based on real-life incidents and have been developed by cyber-security experts, with input from police cyber units and legal advisers.

The event will allow you to engage in a multi-way conversation with the event organisers and other attendees, anonymously, to gain more knowledge about how to prevent or respond to cyber attacks. Other cyber-security experts will also be present at the event for informative updates and advice.

Please bring a laptop running windows in order to use the platforms and run the scenarios.

The Yorkshire Cyber Project is run by CENTRIC (Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research) who have created the platform and have a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise to share with you.

This project has received Higher Education Innovation Funding (HEIF), which supports and develops knowledge-based interactions between universities / colleges and the wider world.

The event is FREE but places are limited so please register with Eventbrite.
