Chris Ensor, NCSC Deputy Director for Growth, said:
“The CyberFirst Girls Competition is a great introduction for young people to cyber security, and since its launch it has gone from strength to strength.
“While the competition continues to grow in popularity, we want to make sure we’re drawing on talent from all parts of the UK, and the introduction of regional semi-finals will help us do that.
