CyberFirst Girls Development Days



Inspired and led by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) - a part of GCHQ, girls in Year 8/9 in England and Wales and Year 9/10 in Northern Ireland and S2/S3 in Scotland, can join free cyber security development days running this October.

The CyberFirst Girls Development Day initiative is designed to increase understanding of the different specialisms within Cyber Security and equip girls with valuable, in-demand skills.


There is a series of fun, interactive face-to-face one-day courses as well as virtual courses which are split over two days, to choose from. There will also be guest speakers and inspiring videos from inspirational female role models working in the industry.


On the day, the girls will be role playing as cyber security experts working for a fictitious app company, Sirius Cyberworks. Unfortunately, disaster has struck and there has been a serious breach of the company network - a new flagship app has been leaked.


The girls’ role is to work through four different parts of the company, uncovering how the leak happened whilst learning new cyber skills along the way. 


Places are limited, so if you have students who might be interested, please share this information with them so that they don’t miss out.
