October is Cyber Security Awareness Month, Get involved with one of these great competitions now open for registration!

CyberCenturion (UK)

Are you aged 12-18 and enjoy puzzles, code breaking and cyber? The competition is played by teams of four, with an optional reserve player. Each team must include a responsible adult as the liaison between the organisers and the participants, and every team participant must be aged 12-18 years during the entirety of the competition; to include the final.

To encourage further diversity in the competition there will be a series of ‘tracks’ for CyberCenturion: girls only teams, boys only teams, mixed teams and cadet teams. Read more on this here. Places in the final will be awarded to the top scoring teams in the overall leaderboard and each tracks’ leaderboard.  The National Finals of CyberCenturion will take place in early March 2018 in London with 10 teams battling it out for prizes and the accolade of CyberCenturion champion 2018.

CyberPatriot (US)
CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program.  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 in a six-hour period.  Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.
