DENVER — Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018 — Gov. Hickenlooper and the State’s Chief Information Security Officer Deborah Blyth have joined with the SANS Institute to help educate and inspire the next generation of female cybersecurity professionals. Through the GirlsGoCyberStart program, Colorado’s high school girls in grades 9 through 12, or a homeschool equivalent, are invited to discover their talents in cybersecurity and learn about the field through a no-cost, online game of fun technical challenges.
In 2017, the SANS Institute piloted CyberStart, a program designed to inspire the next generation of cybersecurity professionals while identifying talented youth. The summer 2017 State CyberStart program enabled nearly 3,500 students in seven states to discover and demonstrate their aptitude for cybersecurity. Only five percent of the participating students were young women. Undeterred, SANS has launched GirlsGoCyberStart, a new program designed specifically to attract high school girls.
