Attention Squadron 107 cadets! We are in the process of putting together a team for the 2019-2020 CyberPatriot XII National Youth Cyber Defense Competition! If you have an interest in computers, electronics, STEM, programming or any other related field, we want you!
WHAT IS CYBERPATRIOT?
CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program. At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six hour period. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.
If you or someone you know is interested in joining our team, please contact your squadron’s IT Officer.
