Get ready. Get set. Go!
The core mission of the Executive Women's Forum is to create a trusted community of members who are encouraged to build strong networks and lasting relationships, who have access to empowering resources and who are inspired by each other to achieve their professional goals and personal dreams.
About the Challenge
The Cyber Security School Challenge is a collaborative outreach program founded by the Executive Women's Forum and in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University, (ISC)2 and the National Cyber Security Alliance to help educate our youth on the topics of online security, privacy, and safety.
The EWF through its Cyber Security School Challenge outreach program is harnessing the collective passions and unified actions of its members and their peers to educate students in a way that may positively influence their future.
Who Should Accept the Challenge?
We are offering the challenge to all professionals (men and women) in the Information Security, Privacy and Risk Management communities to register at this site, follow the Three Steps and then report back to us the students you've taught.
We challenge you to not only contribute your time, but think of ways that you can create a corporate team that will boost your chances of becoming the Cyber Security School Challenge Winner.

2017-2018 Challenge Timeline & Awards Presentation
We will be tracking the number of students each executive or their team reaches out to from now through September 30, 2018. The executive or team that reaches out to the most students by September 2018 will be honored with an award, announcements and postings on the EWF website and with an awards ceremony at the Annual EWF National Conference held at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale in October 2018.
Cybersecurity School Challenge | Friday, October 26, 2018
Join us on Friday in Arizona for an amazing cause!
This year we're doing something a little different. At five high schools, EWF women will share their "How I Got Here" stories with high school students to inspire and educate our future cyber, risk and privacy leaders. At the same time, volunteers will go to three Scottsdale school district locations to educate K-8 teachers and administrators on common cyber and privacy risks. All sessions will have time for Q&A.
