CyberPatriot

Forgetting passwords every Monday lunch.

CyberPatriot is looking for parent volunteers to help us run competition rounds during the school year. Please fill out this form (preferred) or contact Mr. Shockey if interested.

About

Welcome to CyberPatriot! CyberPatriot is an international secondary school competition about cybersecurity and system hardening. Rounds happen throughout fall and partway through the spring, culminating in the National Finals competition in Baltimore, MD (only the top 12 teams in our division across the competition qualify, < 0.4%). Each round, your team of 5 cyber incident responders are placed in the midst of a crisis at a company, which has just discovered an attack on three or four main systems and network. Your job is to contain and fix it all within 6 hours.

Of course, the easiest way to see this exciting, fun, and challenging competition is to experience it yourself through the training and practice rounds. Come to a meeting to learn more.

Note

This club is meant as a companion to the competition. The schedules this year will (hopefully) be different as main team training will take place afterschool. Monday lunchtime club hours are focused on expanding on topics, giving broad overviews, and as time for teams to meet and work on preparing for the next round. Anyone is welcome to join in any meeting.

As of now, teams are full for this school year. We apologize, but the computer science rooms can only support a maximum of 8 teams. If you are interested in possibly participating as an alternate or substitute, please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
