The National Cyber Security Centre 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.
- Teams are made up of up to four female students in Year 8, S2 or Year 9 (NI).
- Teams need to be supported by a responsible adult appointed by the school who is aged over 18 years and who can act as the team guardian.
- Team guardians do not need to have any cyber knowledge or be an IT or computer science teacher. Their role is to register the teams and facilitate access to the competition
- Schools can enter as many teams as they like if they fit the qualifying criteria (see above).
Whatever ability, from beginner to expert, CyberFirst Girls Competition is an opportunity to learn something new about cyber security.
