With local businesses looking to employ people in the sector and 3,500 cyber-security jobs in the UK, Staff at USW are trying to encourage more females to join the cyber-security sector in Wales. 

An article from the BBC revealed that only 11% of the cyber-security workforce is female, worldwide. Clare Johnson, Head of Cyber Security at USW, founded the Women in Cyber Wales group in 2018 to inspire more young girls to take an interest in the subject and encourage diversity within the industry. She is also committed to making sure that our cyber courses are aligned with industry needs and hopes that more young girls will be inspired to pursue a career in Cyber Security.
