Event Details

Overview

U.S. Cyber Challenge Awards program and Cybersecurity Summit

 

description:

The U.S. Cyber Challenge serves as a premier program to identify, attract, recruit, train, and place the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.  Top performers from different colleges and universities are offered award winning training from top instructors on new concepts and approaches.  During the cyber camps in the summer, those who qualify participate in discussions with leaders in the cyber field and teams are formed where they compete against others in the region in a "capture-the-flag" competition where the winners win scholarships and prizes.  These winners are acknowledged at the Cybersecurity Summit in October by representatives from the White House.  In addition, the forum includes cybersecurity presentations and panel discussions with senior leaders from government, industry and academia.  

The mission of this initiative is to fill the workforce gap of cybersecurity professionals through a process of assessment, training and employment networking.

This event is being done in collaboration with ACT-IAC and the Center for Internet Security (CIS).

objectives:

  • To learn and share updates, trends and challenges on cybersecurity from government, industry and academia
  • To acknowledge the successful competition and completion of the winners of the U.S. Cyber Challenge
  • To share with other Universities and Colleges the opportunity to participate in a U.S. Cyber Challenge by describing the cybersecurity assessment, training, and competitive challenge process
