節錄部分採訪內容

“HITCON GIRLS has two purposes: to make more women aware of the cybersecurity field as a career, and to create opportunities for more women to join the field,” explains Hazel, who is a co-founder and active member and of the growing community.

HITCON GIRLS 有兩個目標
1. 讓更多的女生意識到資安可以是一個工作
2. 並製造機會讓更多女生加入這個領域

“Through our events, training and online forums, participants learn from and network with females working in the industry in an environment where they are not a minority and are encouraged to interact.”

“通過我們的活動,讀書會和線上互動,讓參與者和資安產業裡的女性意識到他們並不是少數,並鼓勵大家交流和互動。”

“In its three years, more than 500 people have attended HITCON GIRLS training workshops and meetups, and its Facebook page has attracted over 3,000 followers. The HITCON GIRLS blog has also been an important tool for the group to share knowledge about fundamental cybersecurity concepts like APT, CTF and malware.”

“三年來有將近五百人參加過 HITCON GIRLS 各式活動,Facebook 也有 3000 多名追隨者,並在 Blog 分享有關於資安的知識,例如 APT, CTF 和惡意程式。“

“Like other community groups, we have a duty to increase awareness of the importance of information and cybersecurity in Taiwan,” explains Hazel. “Whatever we do, we are always conscious of making our content as clear, concise, and relevant as we can so that participants and readers can understand it and, most importantly, take action.” 

“像其他社群一樣,我們有責任提高台灣對資安的重視。在我們的作為裡(不論是辦活動或者是Blog),會盡量讓內容清楚、簡潔,使參加者或讀者都能閱讀,最重要的是行動起來!”

Hazel and the rest of the HITCON GIRLS committee recognize that it will take several years of “hard work and outreach” before they start to see a change in the number of women working in the industry. However, they are continually buoyed when workshop participants and group members contact them to say how the group had given them the motivation to pursue a career in cybersecurity.

Hazel 和 HITCON GIRLS 成員意識到,在開始看到資安產業中的女性人數成長前,需要幾年的“努力工作和對外推廣”。 然而,活動的參加者或是內部成員回饋表示「該活動如何給予他們動力讓他們可以往資安方面求職」總是讓人提振精神


“In the future, we hope that women in information security are no longer a minority.”

“今後,我們希望女性關注資安不再是少數。“



在此感謝創始團隊成員 Hazel Yen, Awon, Ashley Shen, Belinda Lai, Shirley Kuo and Turkey Li 提供回憶,並感謝小蘇協助大量文字處理!
