Listen up girls – how would you like the chance to flex your cyber security skills by playing exciting competitions designed by industry leaders like HP, Sophos and Cassidian? What about the chance to win career-enhancing prizes like IT training programmes or even a trip to the top-secret Government Communications Headquarters?
Let us introduce you to Cyber Security Challenge UK – a series of national competitions designed to give you a taste of what it’s like to be a cyber security professional and inspire you to get involved in the ever-expanding industry.
Now in its third year of competitions , the Challenge is on a mission to spread the word about why cyber security is such a fulfilling and varied career and help talented people get their first cyber security jobs. It is sponsored by some of the UK’s most prestigious public, private and academic organisations who design competitions and offer once-in-a-lifetime prizes.
Cyber crime costs the UK government an estimated £27 billion every year, affecting everyone from large corporations to SMEs to the individual woman on the street. The threat is growing – Jonathan Evans, MI5 Director General recently highlighted cyber attacks as one of four top global risks to UK. This means it is even more important to get the most talented techies in place to protect our online networks.
As we all know, the IT industry sometimes struggles to represent the hundreds of talented and skilled women in its community – cyber security is not altogether different. But, we also know, you are out there! Now is your chance to prove just how good your technical skills are by taking part in one of Cyber Security Challenge UK’s competitions and get your hands on over £100,000 worth of educational, career enabling prizes such as internships and training courses. Oh and spread the work to all the other girlie geeks you know!

Here’s what makes Shalina tick:
I am a 27 year old Computer Science graduate currently working as a software developer in Cape Town, South Africa. I love what I do, but often struggle with the little things. I would like to think that I am confident, friendly and enthusiastic about females ruling the world someday.
Local Mentor? Yes
Time required for mentoring: Weekly
Would like to be contacted via the following channels for mentoring:
If you are interested in mentoring her please fill out this form. If there are multiple people who submit then we will forward all submissions and Shalina will choose the person she feels suits her needs best.
L’annuncio è arrivato
poche decine di minuti un paio di ore fa attraverso un twit di Michele Ficara Manganelli, classe 1966, esperto di comunicazione digitale e fondatore di Assodigitale. E noi siamo pronti ad accogliere
al volo la notizia e diffonderla.
Agenda Digitale, ecco il documento
ufficiale semidefinitivo (come suggerisce Fabio Malagnino, Consiglio Regionale del Piemonte) della cabina di regia. La presentazione che ne riassume i contenuti è stata condivisa su slideshare ed è scaricabile qui.
Ho dato solo una lettura veloce al testo, che mi riprometto di esaminare con maggiore attenzione. Intanto vorrei mettere qui in evidenza gli aspetti che mi hanno colpita di più.
In sintesi, accanto alle informazioni delle prime pagine, noto intanto che a pag. 8 e 9 si prevede la consultazione social su alcuni aspetti (è previsto che si possa intervenire attivamente, pare, anche presentando istanze e proposte).
A pag. 13 si evidenziano gli obiettivi e i tempi di realizzazione delle infrastrutture per banda larga, banda larga ultraveloce e sicurezza.
A pag. 18 in evidenza il tema dell’E-commerce e

a pag. 27 l’alfabetizzazione informatica, entrambi argomenti che occupano un ruolo fondamentale anche tra gli obiettivi di lavoro del nostro gruppo, in particolare il punto 3 di pag.32.
A pag. 36, inoltre, si affronta l’utilità del digitale per innovare e creare sviluppo anche in settori più tradizionali. Penso subito all’agroalimentare, in particolare al
vino, che a mio parere ha ampie possibilità di sviluppo in tal senso.

We have just set up a mentoring programme. We would love to get those of you who are interested in finding a mentor or being a mentor connected. We hope that we’ve asked all the right questions and with any luck this programme will grow over time and support those of you within the Girl Geek Dinners network!
Longer term we will look to formalise the tools and remove some of the manual matching steps but in the meantime bear with us. We look forward to inspiring and encouraging you all and fostering an awesome network of women in the IT industry.
Zoe Cunningham answers our Three Questions, giving you an insight into her role and how she got there.
Girl Geek Dinners has today launched a new spokesperson platform where members of Girl Geek Dinners can register their interest in speaking about their experience as a female technologist to the press. The platform has only been launched for a few hours and already it has a great base of women technologists just waiting for you the press to talk to them and find out about their inspirational stories.
If you are looking for a female technologist for an article then let us know we’ll check our registered spokespeople and see if we have anyone appropriate and if we do then we’ll put you in touch. If we don’t we’ll put a shout out on our channels and let everyone know that you’re looking!
This is a great platform to showcase talented and inspirational technologists that you haven’t had access to until now!
This is our shiny new press center and we hope that you find it useful. We will be posting press releases here and you can subscribe to these via RSS.
If you have any questions, please contact us through our Contact Form.
