The NCSC are working hard to get more girls interested in a career in cyber security. The CyberFirst Girls Competition provides a fun but challenging environment to inspire the next generation of young women to consider a career in cyber security.
The competition is a team event, with each one made up of 4 female students from Year 8 in England and Wales, Year 9 in Northern Ireland and S2 in Scotland.
Hear from last year’s Scottish winners and UK finalists – the Greenwood Challengers:
CyberFirst is a programme of opportunities to help young people aged 11 – 17 years explore their passion for tech by introducing them to the fast paced world of cyber security.
The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) provide short courses designed to introduce the younger generation to the world of cyber security. There are different challenges for different age groups, starting with Trailblazers at S2.
