Girls Go CyberStart game: apply to play

A new, innovative cybersecurity training program offered by the SANS Institute offers young women in high school the opportunity to learn basic cybersecurity skills through a no-cost online game of discovery called Girls Go CyberStart.

Participating students do not need prior cybersecurity knowledge or programming experience. All that is required is a computer and an internet connection.

Young women in high school in Iowa who excel in the Girls Go CyberStart game will have the opportunity to win computers and other prizes as well as a trip, with a parent, to the 2018 Women in CyberSecurity Conference.

Registration begins on Jan. 29 and closes Feb. 16. The first 10,000 young women who have registered may play the game online from Feb. 20-25.
