Nicky Debolt, Cyber Patriots Coach at Highlands Ranch High School
CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program created by the Air Force Association (AFA) to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. 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.
There will be a breakout session where attendees will have an opportunity to join one of 3 stations to learn/refresh on the security basics led by our Cyber Patriot team! This will be a very interactive meeting where we can learn from our youngest cyber members and allow them an opportunity to learn from us! Stations include, Windows Security, Linux Security and one for Network Security.
Join us on September 14th to meet some of our local CyberPatriots and learn more about the organization and how we can engage and support with the idea of inspiring young women in Colorado to join our forces in STEM and Cyber Security!
