AFA Congratulates Advancing Teams in CyberPatriot Competition

CyberPatriot—The National High School Cyber Defense Competition recently announced the top scoring teams who will be advancing to Round 3, the semifinal round of competition.

CyberPatriot, an education initiative produced by AFA in 2008, is a one-of-a-kind cyber defense competition that provides students hands-on learning about cyber security. CyberPatriot V brought in more than 1,200 team registrations from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, U.S. Department of Defense Dependent Schools in both Europe and the Pacific, and Canada in the two-track competition. Teams have registered from public, private, parochial and home schools in the Open Division, and JROTC units of all Services, Naval Sea Cadets Corps and Civil Air Patrol squadrons filled the All-Service Division.

During the second round of competition, held the first and second weekends of December, teams set out once again to defend virtualized networks of computers. Teams were scored according to how quickly and effectively they established and maintained secure networks. The scores of the first and second preliminary rounds were aggregated to determine which teams moved forward.
