Developing the Next Generation of Cyber Defenders


As our society continues to move towards a more interconnected “convergence culture” approach to learning and living, so increases the demand to maintain and develop technologies that insure secure data sources, resilient infrastructure, and safe communications. With limited computer science educational programming occurring in our K-12 communities and only a recent shift in universities to include cyber within their computer science offerings, our society is at a shortage for cyber security talent. Argonne hosted a Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition in April 2016 to support the development of the next generation of cyber defenders. Are you interested in learning more about the competition?
