The Women of Security Singapore (WoSEC) and HackTheBox collaborated to run The First CTF (Capture-The-Flag) CTF For Girls, a one-day cybersecurity hacking competition held at ICE71 in Singapore on 13 Jul, 2019.
Together with Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) and industry sponsors, this contest for girls enables participants to learn, train and test cyber security skills.
Magda Chelly, Managing Director of Responsible Cyber and WoSEC Singapore founder adds: “This event will be for all girls and women; cyber security professionals and enthusiasts, who want to have a fun, enjoyable, intellectually stimulating day through a Capture-The-Flag event. It will inspire and motivate younger talent to discover the cyber security space and relate to industry role models. The event will showcase available talents, allowing organizations in the future to bring diversity into their teams.”
This move focuses on shaping and motivating the current and next generation of information security professionals, especially females who are underrepresented in this area.
