In a bid to inspire and engage young girls in the world of cybersecurity, an exciting assembly unfolded today at Ysgol Treffynnon with the introduction of the Cyber First Girls Competition. The competition, scheduled to start next week and run for 10 days, aims to encourage more girls to explore the dynamic field of cybersecurity.

The Cyber First Girls Competition seeks to bridge the gender gap in the cybersecurity sector, an industry traditionally dominated by male professionals. By actively involving young girls in cyber-related activities, the competition aims to foster interest, skills, and confidence among participants.

The assembly was conducted by Lois Roberts, who led an engaging and informative session to introduce the Cyber First Girls Competition to the Year 8 students. Ms. Roberts expressed her gratitude in an email after the assembly, stating, "Thank you both for letting me come in and present to the girls this morning. It was a pleasure to teach your Year 8 girls. They are a real credit to your school."

The positive feedback from Ms. Roberts reflects the enthusiasm and receptiveness of the students, showcasing the potential for this competition to make a lasting impact on the future of cybersecurity education.

As the registration for teams kicks off, Ysgol Treffynnon anticipates a strong turnout of aspiring young cyber experts ready to take on the challenges and opportunities presented by the Cyber First Girls Competition. This initiative not only promotes inclusivity in the tech industry but also nurtures the skills essential for addressing the evolving landscape of cybersecurity.

Lets take the first step towards empowering the next generation of female cybersecurity professionals.
