Throughout the spring and summer of 2023, we will provide training to introduce students to cybersecurity and prepare them to participate in the competition. Students are welcome to join the team in the summer to try it out before teams are confirmed in the fall.
We will form teams depending on the number of students in the program and the skills. In the 3 competition rounds, students will have the opportunity to gain points in the competition rounds and advance to the semifinals and Nationals.
Students have the chance to compete in semifinals and national rounds if they gain enough points.
You won't be alone in this challenge. Our industry mentors, who work in cybersecurity on PEI, will provide you with training and support throughout the competition!
