Cybersecurity professionals are in high demand and the talent gap continues to increase across the country (read more at CyberSeek.org). We must work together to close the talent gap and help shift the gender balance to bring diversity to this fast-growing discipline. Female students with an interest in cybersecurity can attend a CTG event to experience activities that may lead to further cybersecurity education in their future.
CyberTech Girls at College of Southern Nevada’s will be an exciting mix of hands-on experience, meeting inspiring women in security and fun. All interested Middle School and High School girls, their parents, coaches, mentors, and teachers are invited to attend the event.
The girls will experience cybersecurity lessons through meeting and hearing from women working in security, a variety of brain-stretching activities and an opportunity to talk with other girls in southern Nevada.
