The State of Connecticut is participating in an innovative, new cybersecurity training partnership with the SANS Institute that will increase access to young women in high school with the opportunity to explore their interests in cyber studies and learn basic cybersecurity skills in an effort to inspire the next generation of cybersecurity professionals while identifying talented youth. The initiative, known as GirlsGoCyberStart, was initiated by SANS following the recent launch of their CyberStart program, which enabled 3,500 students in seven states to discover and demonstrate their aptitude for cybersecurity.  Young women in high school in Connecticut will be competing with students in 15 other states and American Somoa. Registration will begin on January 29 and ends on February 16, 2018.  The first 10,000 young women in high schools in these states who have registered may play the game online from February 20 through 25.  An introductory web site with answers to other questions potential participants may have, a fuller description of the game, and a sample challenge is now available online at https://girlsgocyberstart.com/.
