Description

With digital platforms and services being an increasingly inescapable part of our day-to-day lives, have you ever stopped to ask yourself, "Is my personal data safe? Is my sensitive data being handled with care? Is my privacy being protected?" Cybersecurity is the practice of establishing and maintaining confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information, and it is the job of cybersecurity professionals to protect networks, devices, people, and data from unauthorized access or criminal exploitation.

Cybersecurity professionals apply their knowledge and skills alongside a wide variety of tools and best practices to establish preventive security measures or, in the event of an attack or attempted breach, understand the impact of such an event and do their best to mitigate any damage caused.

Why learn SQL?

One of the most useful tools in their toolbelt is usage log data recorded by their systems and stored in databases, however having large amounts of data at their disposal creates a new challenge: how can this data be made useful?

Structured query language (or SQL) is one of the most commonly-used computer languages for working with data and communicating with databases. SQL is a powerful language that allows us to extract useful insights from large quantities of data stored in databases. Cybersecurity professionals need to be able to efficiently sift through large amounts of data to be able to find irregularities that may indicate that their systems have been—or are being—targeted for an attack and SQL is a handy tool to accomplish that.

The bottom line:

Whether you've heard of databases or are brand new to them, this experience is designed for you. In this experience, you will learn the basics of SQL through a cybersecurity lens. Through hands-on exercises that will have you writing and executing SQL queries, you will learn to retrieve, filter, and sort data stored in a database to be able to address common cybersecurity problems and questions that cybersecurity professionals deal with on a regular basis.

Prerequisites:

None! This workshop is designed for beginners.

About This Program

Who this is for

  • “I’m curious about tech and code in general”
  • “I am a complete beginner when it comes to coding”
  • “I have some coding skills but I’m looking to try my hand at something new!”
  • “I have financial barriers that make it hard to pay for classes and training”
  • “I’m not sure if I belong in tech— I wish I saw more people like me leading this industry!”
This event is for women in Canada, designed in a way that seeks to explicitly welcome cis women, trans women, and those outside the gender binary who feel comfortable in women-centered spaces. We believe that addressing the gender gap in tech is just one part of building digital equity. A more just and equitable future for technology in Canada means building programming that supports, empowers, and equips all learners who historically have been—and continue to be—underrepresented in tech, particularly Black, Indigenous and other Racialized learners, people in low-income communities and newcomer learners If this sounds like you, we can’t wait to have you learn with us.
