About SheSecures

SheSecures is an initiative that seeks to help close the gender gap in cybersecurity and promote diversity in the industry by encouraging and inspiring women and girls to develop their technical skills and learn more about the field.

SheSecures consists of a national online cybersecurity exercise composed of technical challenges based on real-life scenarios and the experiences of distinguished women in STEM. Participants must complete the challenges to advance to the next levels and earn points. At the end of the exercise, the participants with the most points will win a prize.

This exercise is aimed at women over the age of 16 who want to develop their technical skills and enter the cybersecurity industry. The exercise will cover topics such as artificial intelligence, incident response, cryptography, web hacking, and forensics, among others. If you have no previous knowledge on these topics, don't worry, as you will be able to ask for hints to complete the challenges if you get stuck at some point. To participate you only need to have an Internet connection (without specific restrictions on outgoing traffic), and a computer with a Windows, Linux, or MacOS operating system, with the ability to install tools.
