InfoSect announces HackerChix edition - training opportunities for women
InfoSect has long been a supporter of increasing the number of women in the Cyber Security industry, particularly in the technical streams. HackerChix was established by the InfoSect founders in 2017 to provide a community of women to support and encourage one another. It has been a regular staple of BSides Canberra every year and has resumed monthly meetings on the 2nd Monday of every month.
We wanted to do more, so InfoSect has partnered with the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) to offer a suite of its courses in 2022. The courses will be heavily subsidised for those that identify as a woman to participate in.
Three of our most popular courses will be taught by women, for women.
"The varied and in depth content gives you a rich overview, and many paths to deepen your understanding. A good amount of exercises help apply the learning, and by the last day, the open ended activities gave me a chance to see what knowledge stuck, and where I need more learning."
