NCC Group partners with Empowering You to build powerful communities of female cyber security leaders

We are delighted to continue our partnership with Empowering You, a unique cross-sector initiative in the UK, backed by industry and government, to help build communities of diverse, authentic, female leaders in digital and cyber security through its Empowering Women to Lead programme.

The UK based, regional Empowering Women to Lead cyber security programme, supports the sector's emerging leadership talent through inviting women across the country to apply to participate in a free three-month course designed to enable the transition of aspirational and early to mid-career professionals, team leaders and managers into more confident, capable, and energised leaders.

Chris Woodcock, Director at Empowering You said "As global experts in cyber security and risk mitigation, NCC Group is the perfect organisation to sponsor our Empowering Women in Cyber Security programme, and through our partnership, we look forward to building a collaborative and powerful community of female leaders in cyber security and InfoSec roles across all industry sectors."

Through the partnership, NCC Group will feed into the development of the programme, scope successful applicants and support them on their journey to recognise their leadership capabilities and realise their potential, empowering them to inspire others and drive positive change that benefits everyone through a series of workshops, talks, and mentoring sessions.

Rebecca Fox, CIO at NCC Group comments "We are absolutely delighted to be sponsoring this programme for the third time. We exist to create a more secure digital future, and to do this, it's vital we have a diverse talent pool of authentic, empowered female leaders to help maximise our delivery on that purpose in the most impactful way.

"Having supported the programme previously, I have first-hand experience in understanding just how valuable initiatives like these are to individuals on their leadership journey in supporting their potential and helping them to recognise their strengths and capabilities.

Sophia McCall, Security Consultant at NCC Group and participant in the Northern England Empowering Women to Lead autumn 2023 programme says "I am thoroughly looking forward to being a part of the next cohort for the Empowering Women to Lead Cyber Security program that enables the transition of aspirational career professionals to leaders in cyber security. It is a great opportunity to hone skills and confidence in leadership, as well as a fantastic opportunity to network with other likeminded and inspirational women in the industry. The Empowering Women to Lead Cyber Security program enables professionals to influence and lead change in cyber security, and I cannot wait for the program to start!
