The labs will prepare participants for the final hackathon that will be held in March at RomeCup. The Milan event will focus on the contribution of artificial intelligence systems for company sustainability.
On Friday, October 6 (10:30), the Microsoft House will kick off the CyberSHEcurity Challenge, with forty young female students in Milan working as a cybersecurity team to develop a business prevention and defence strategy against cybercriminals. The young protagonists will face topical issues, such as privacy and data security. The objective is to help these women grasp the many career opportunities available in a rapidly expanding sector, cybersecurity, but whose female workforce only represents 25% of workers in 2023.
