The main aim is the creation of multimedia resources to bring cyber security careers closer to secondary and VET students. Several kinds of video will be created to give an insight into cyber security careers to students, teachers and families. On one hand, one animated video for each profession will be created using language and design close to youngsters, and in a high percentage of them, female roles will be emphasised to approach the issue of gender equality. On the other hand, videos about real success cases of women working in cyber security will be recorded, who will talk about their experiences and motivate young girls to develop a successful career in ICT security area.
In addition, each partner will compile a set of 10 success stories of women working in cyber security in their country by using a common template. Then testimonial videos of a maximum of 2 minutes each (3-5 videos per country) will be recorded on real cases of successful women working in cyber security. These women will talk about their experiences and encourage young women to develop a career and success in ICT security.
