Serviceteam IT Security News

The NCSC – as part of GCHQ – are working hard to get more people interested in a career in cyber security.  If you think it’s not for you, I reckon you’d be surprised. Cyber security now has fantastic opportunities matching a wide range of different skills, and not always the ones you’d expect.

We’re now really pleased to launch a CyberFirst Girls Competition, which 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 aged 13 to 15 years (as of 27 March 2017). It consists of two distinct phases:

  • the first phase is an online qualifying round to identify the top ten teams
  • the second phase is the ‘Grand Final’ – where the top ten teams will battle it out at a high-profile location in London 

Whatever your ability – from beginner to expert – you’ll definitely learn something new about cyber security.

You can pre-register at the competition website, so tell your friends and start building your team today.

Good luck!
