CyberPatriot IX National Finalists Announced

Through four grueling rounds of online competition, 12 Open Division teams, 13 All Service Division teams, and 3 Middle School Division teams have earned an all-expenses paid trip the Baltimore, Md. on April 3-5, where they'll battle it out for the title of National Champion.

Teams will compete to defend virtual networks and mobile devices from a professional aggressor team. The National Finalists will face-off in four additional competition components: the Cisco Networking Challenge, the Leidos Digital Forensics Challenge, the Facebook Challenge, and the AT&T Mobile Device competition component, all of which return from previous seasons. These extra challenges help broaden the students' cybersecurity experience and expose teams to new elements of the many career opportunities available to them.
