#IBMCyberDay4Girls

IBM is pleased to partner with CISSE 2018 to bring you #IBMCyberDay4Girls.

Build your knowledge of cybersecurity and hear about exciting opportunities in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) with a fun day of learning, games, and giveaways! Learn about protecting your online identity and the Internet of Things and meet female role models studying and working in cybersecurity. Register to attend at:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ibmcyberday4girls-tickets-45434610142

This is a workshop for girls in grades 6 to 8 hosted at sites in the U.S. and Canada. We designed the program to help raise cyber security awareness among young girls at the critical juncture when many begin opting out of science and math. Our goal was to capture the imaginations of these students both by sharing information about future opportunities in cyber security, and by offering encouragement and support to counteract the social and peer pressures that discourage too many talented young women from pursuing their interests in STEM.

Program participants also learned about applying basic threat modeling to help anticipate and defend against hacking attempts of internet-connected devices and systems and gained valuable career insights from women leaders from all disciplines within IBM Security and the Cybersecurity academic community.

We hope that the program will inspire at least a few of the girls and open their eyes to the world of possibilities in cyber security!

Learn

  • how to protect yourself online
  • that anything connected to the internet can be hacked
  • that women are just as capable as men in the tech fields
  • that everyone can pursue a career in cyber security

The Colloquium recognizes that the protection of information and infrastructures that are used to create, store, process, and communicate information is vital to business continuity and security. The Colloquium's goal is to work together to define current and emerging requirements for information assurance education and to influence and encourage the development and expansion of information assurance curricula, especially at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
