How to build a career in technology and cyber security for females
Three successful women will share their experiences on their career journeys in technology in general and cyber security, in particular.
The Channel Island Information Security Forum (CIISF) and the Jersey Computer Emergency Response (CERT Jersey) team would like to invite girls aged between 14 – 18 to a talk presented by guest speakers Robyn Savage, Lucy Munday and Anna Garbar.
They will share their experiences of how they have built their careers in Technology and the field of Cyber Security, and in particular the path they all took after leaving school which led them to being highly successful ‘Women In Tech’ in their current roles. The event will be very informal and will allow those attending to listen to the very different paths each of them took and ask any questions.
The event will be held at the CERT Jersey offices, 1 Seaton Place, St Helier, Jersey JE2 3QL (Opposite Big J Take Away) between 1 and 2 pm on Tuesday, 31 May 2022. A light sandwich lunch will be served. Those attending will also have the opportunity to look round the new offices. Places are limited so booking is essential.
