Girls in Cyber Security Workshop

Nine Galen girls have been participating in a three day Girls in Cyber Security Advancing (GiCSA) workshop at Charles Sturt University Wangaratta this week. The project aimed at getting year 9 and 10 girls interested and involved with cyber security. The field of cyber security is suffering from a shortage of women, and GiCSA is working towards changing that. Only 11% of all information security jobs are held by women, and more than half of those are admin or non-managerial positions.
