Who We Are: We are an extracurricular competitive club that practices securing vulnerabilities on computing systems and participate in team competitions throughout the year.
What We Do: We participate in the USAF Cyberpatriot Cybersecurity National Competition. There are no auditions this year - members should form their own teams (minimum of 2 members, maximum of 6).
WHAT IS CYBERPATRIOT?
CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program. CyberPatriot was conceived by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire middle and high school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future.
THE NATIONAL YOUTH CYBER DEFENSE COMPETITION
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. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Washington, DC for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.
