Cyber security is an industry where females are greatly underrepresented, with only one in ten being female. Have a look at our student page to see the opportunities for young girls when choosing subjects or career paths for the future.

A big congratulations to everyone involved – with a special congratulations to a local NI School; The Furious 4 – from St Catherine’s College, Armagh. The girls will now progress to a live national final to be held in Manchester in March – good luck from the Bring IT On team.
