Guidance for filing out the application:
Please run a spell-check before submitting your application
Note1: Evidence of maternity/paternity leave could consist of a birth-certificate of your child stating your name as a parent, or a doctor’s note. In case of work related career break, give proof of employment with last employer and state your employment record including periods of break.
Note 2: Evidence of career transition for those in current employment should be a letter/email from your employer that states your present area of work. For students, the last academic degree in a non-CS area (eg. Sociology/Psychology) is acceptable evidence. If you started work exclusively in cybersecurity only in the last one year and still consider yourself as being in transition, please provide evidence of working in a different area from your employer relating to the period from a year ago.
