CyberFirst began as a UK Government programme of opportunities to help young people explore their passion for tech by introducing them to the world of cyber security.
"CyberFirst covers a broad range of activities: comprehensive bursary and apprenticeship schemes; a girls' only competition and school's development courses at UK universities and colleges. There’s even Cyber Discovery
; our online extracurricular programme. Each activity is designed to seek out people with potential, offering the support, skills, experience and exposure needed to be the future first line of defence in our CyberFirst world." - NCSC
