Western Sydney University student, Emma Seaman, has become the first female university cyber ambassador for the NSW Cyber Security Innovation Node — a nationally connected hub for cyber capability and innovation.
Emma, who is in her third year of the Bachelor of Cyber Security and Behaviour, will join a group of experts including academics and professionals in the Cyber Ambassador Program to mentor and inspire young people.
“I’m excited to be involved in a state-wide innovation that is bridging the skills gap in the industry and I’m looking forward to showing that women can play a significant role,” said Emma.
The 20-year-old Parramatta resident will encourage and promote study within STEM and cyber security by engaging with Western Sydney schools to share her experience and build awareness for career opportunities.
