Cybersecurity Opportunity

Virginia (and six other states) has partnered with the SANS Institute (The nation’s premier cyber training organization) to offer a FREE Cyber Challenge (CyberStart) to students age 16 and older.

This is the first time that CyberStart has been deployed in the U.S. and will likely be the ONLY time SANS will make it available at no cost to participants. 

The Cyberstart is an online challenge that can be done from “anywhere” in the Commonwealth.   There is NO age cap…anyone 16 years or older and enrolled in a Virginia High School, Community College or University can participate at NO COSTNO Cyber or IT experience is required!

This is a PHENOMENAL opportunity for students from all disciplines to test their cyber acumen and potentially (based on final scoring) be awarded monetary scholarships provided by the SANS Institute.   

 the qualification window is open between NOW and July 28th.
