Since 2009, CyberPatriot’s National Youth Cyber Defense Competition has challenged teams of two to six students to secure simulated computer systems and resolve real-life cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals. The competition provides students hands-on experience securing computer networks while exciting, educating, and motivating them toward careers in cybersecurity and other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The National Final Competition is the only in-person round, where teams compete to defend virtual networks and mobile devices from a professional aggressor team. The National Finalists also face-off in three additional competition components: the Cisco Networking Challenge, the Leidos Digital Forensics Challenge, and the Facebook Cybersecurity Challenge.
The CyberPatriot competition provides students with skills that can be used in the work force once they graduate high school.
