The lockdown has forced almost everyone into digitalization. But as the scale of the number of people doing remote work has increased so has the complexity and vastness of cyberattacks.

Now, from the point of a female engineering student, it’s hard to find a lot of female colleagues in the tech field.‘The International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology’ and many others have published studies regarding the gender gap of women in technology, cybersecurity being one of the fields. And we believe it is our duty to do something for the cause.

If you have ever been intrigued by cybersecurity and wanted to learn, the next question is HOW. Well, we may have the best answer to that, CTF’s. CTFs’ are coding competitions to the Cyberworld teaching you how to work up to escalate privileges from lowkey “bugs”.

Yes, we all know that there are tons of resources on the Internet. But that’s exactly the reason why we lose track. In this talk, we shall introduce you some Crypto and a little bit of Reverse Engineering and shall give you an idea of how to get started and how to navigate your way into the cyber realm. We shall also talk about existing opportunities for women and how to make the most of it.
