Professor Benham founded this charity in 2016 having found there were certain groups that had access to technology and the Internet but were more vulnerable to its misuse. The Trust simply seeks to run educational courses and talks free of charge to these vulnerable groups to make them more aware and safer when using technology.
It works alongside Gloucestershire Police and is currently chaired by the county’s Lord Lieutenant, Dame Janet Trotter DBE.
TheCyberClub actively supports The Cyber Trust to help.achieve its aim with regular donations.
