Help Inspire Young People into a Cyber Security Career
Smart Futures is an initiative that aims to promote careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to second level students. We help students to see the wide range of careers available, to discover the people working in STEM, the organisations they’re working in and what their interests and skills are. This is achieved through our online presence which consists of our website (Smartfutures.ie) and social media channels (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram). Smart Futures wishes to showcase the exciting and diverse careers in Cyber Security and is actively seeking roles models to feature on the Smart Futures website and social media channels.
Tell us about your career to help inspire young people to consider cyber security as a career. We’re looking to show the diversity of the cyber security sector with people from all backgrounds: technical and non-technical, entry level to C-Suite, gender, race and age. If you are interested in being involved, please contact Nicola at [email protected].”
