Do you like solving puzzles?  Are you curious about cybersecurity? Do you like winning cool prizes?  ARE YOU INTERESTED IN SAVING THE WORLD?

Hawaii’s young women in high school will be joining their peers from 17 other states and territories to participate in a fun and interactive series of cybersecurity challenges called GirlsGoCyberStart.  This innovative program, developed by SANS Institute, will introduce and inspire participants to discover and learn about this exciting, high-demand and rewarding career field where women make up only a fraction of today’s cybersecurity professionals.  GirlsGoCyberStart, which is played online and only requires a computer and an internet connection, runs February 20-25.

Entrants who excel will be recognized and eligible to win computers and other prizes, as well as a trip (with a parent) to the 2018 Women in CyberSecurity Conference in Chicago in March.  Additional prizes exclusively for Hawai’i participants and orientation opportunities will be announced on February 1, 2018.

Registration for GirlsGoCyberStart starts on January 29 and ends on February 16, 2018. Participating students do not need prior cybersecurity knowledge or programming experience. All that is required is a computer and an Internet connection.
