Registration for the CyberFirst Girls Competition 2022 is now open!

CyberFirst Girls Competition 2022

We’d love your help to spread the word amongst your colleagues, local schools, and friends and family.  We’ll soon have a short animation that will be shared on our NCSC Social Media channels #CyberFirst, so please feel free to share or retweet this also.

We thank you in advance for your continued support to the CyberFirst scheme.



We need technology now more than ever – and it needs to be safe, secure and suitable for everyone to use. Which means identifying and nurturing talented young students to protect us from online threats. 

It’s why we’ve created the CyberFirst Girls Competition, designed to show more girls aged 12 and 13 what a career in cyber security looks like, why it matters and where it could take them. 

Through our four cyber security characters; Captain, Logic, Chatter and Vision; we’re showing girls everywhere that the diverse talents and skills they have are valued in the world of cyber security – and that they can help keep themselves, their families and our nation safe and secure.

How can you help?

We want you to spread the word to your colleagues, local schools, family and friends.  We’ve put together a teachers’ pack which can be found at to help teachers encourage their students. In it, they’ll find everything they need to know about signing up a student team in just a few minutes – and, most importantly, why it’s worth being part of this story. There is even a short animation for them to play in class, to help get the girls interested in taking part.

Together, we can empower more girls to discover a career in cyber and where they can play their part in making the UK the safest place to live and work online.
