Brightman supports Year 7 girls during first “Cybersec Jam” event

On the 22nd May 2024, 80 year 7 girls from numerous Cornwall schools participated in “CyberSec Jam,” an exciting cybersecurity event hosted by TECgirls (a part of the TECwomen Community Interest Company), whose mission is to ignite a passion for technology, engineering, and creativity in young women and girls in Cornwall.

The event aimed to increase the girls’ skills in coding and logic, cybersecurity, networks and cryptography. Crucially, the event sought to inspire the girls to pursue careers in the lucrative and fast-growing cybersecurity industry and raise their confidence and skills in cybersecurity. Ultimately, the hope is they will enter a team into this year’s CyberFirst Girls competition in November 2024, which is a national programme organised by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) that is available to girls in Year 8.

8 schools participated from the Cornwall area: Helston College, Truro High School, Brannel, Penrice Academy, Holsworthy Community College, Shebbear College,Truro School and Penryn College.

I had the pleasure of supporting the pupils during the event, which also included giving a short presentation about my career which led me to Brightman, and offering advice to the girls to help inspire them on their future career paths. It was a very exciting and uplifting event, and a real pleasure to participate in.
