This program requires a significant commitment of each student. The program requires 4 hours of course attendance (online and/or in person) a week, as well as an estimated 10 hours of “homework” per week. The selection process is highly competitive due to the nature of the program. We are looking for female candidates who are at least 16 years old and have an extreme interest in a Cybersecurity career. Candidates will be required to submit an application, along with a resume or school (high-school or college) transcripts, along with a written letter explaining to the selection panel why you want to attend this program. All applicants selected for the second round of the application process will be required to interview with the panel for final selection. Each class will be limited 20 students to ensure each student is provided the support and guidance they need throughout the program to be successful.
Students will be exposed to various cybersecurity topics and projects focusing on the skills to be a white-hat hacker. Each student will learn how to collect and analyze Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) required for effective social engineers, be exposed to basic command and scripting required to be effective penetration testers, as well as be learning various penetration testing tools and defenses to protect against malicious actors.
This program is built to immediately have the students learning skills that can be put to use not only in the program but in all their studies. The curriculum is designed to be a valuable learning tool for each girl, but does not demand homework or extensive time after school to finish assignments. The curriculum is designed so that during each meeting a critical skill is taught in a manner that in less than two hours students have immediate satisfaction and value earned.
Each school that desires to have a local Cyber Warrior Princess group needs to ensure that there is a facilitator available who can host meetings weekly or bi-weekly. There is much flexibility built into the curriculum so each school can establish a program that works well for them. There will need to be an internet connection and computers for the girls to use during the time of the meeting. There is no cost for schools to have a program!
