Conference Description (submitted by organizer)

We frequently hear the terms “Cyber 9/11” and “Digital Pearl Harbor,” but what might policymakers do the day after a crisis? The Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge is an annual cyber policy competition for students across the globe to compete in developing national security policy recommendations tackling a fictional cyber catastrophe.

Now entering its fifth year, the Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge is a one-of-a-kind competition designed to provide students across academic disciplines with a deeper understanding of the policy challenges associated with cyber crisis and conflict. Part interactive learning experience and part competitive scenario exercise, it challenges teams to respond to a realistic, evolving cyberattack and analyze the threat it poses to national, international, and private sector interests.

Students have a unique opportunity to interact with expert mentors and high-level cyber professionals while developing valuable skills in policy analysis and presentation. The competition has already engaged over 700 students from universities in the United States, United Kingdom, France, United Arab Emirates, Poland, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Sweden, Finland, and Estonia.

  1. I am currently a student at Colorado Technical University majoring in cyber crime and security, and I would LOVE to attend these conferences so I can start networking with professionals and learn information pertaining to my field. Its hard to get experience before applying to a job because the financial help is needed. I need help getting to the conference and paying for the fee of the conference. I don’t want to take a loan, I currently have a 3.8 GPA and I have been on the Dean’s list for the past year, can this tell that I am really taking my career serious and putting all the effort? I need help!

    1. Fantastic! I hope it all works out for you. You are right that attending these events is a great way to network and get your name out there especially when starting out in Cybersecurity.
