CYBERPATRIOT CLUB MEETING

Are you interested in Cyber Security? If you are, then you need to join the BHS *CyberPatriot Club!! There will be an informational meeting on TUESDAY, JANUARY 19TH from 3:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the multi-purpose room.


*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. 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.
