Students at Del Norte High School are the 1st place winners of the SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge.
The cyber defense competition, which is hosted by the nonprofit NDIA San Diego Chapter, Securing Our eCity Foundation, National University, and Industry partner Leidos is focused on engaging students in cybersecurity. The Cyber Cup’s goal is to encourage students to learn about computer security threats by providing an educational venue where students are able to apply the theories and practical skills they have learned, and foster a spirit of teamwork, ethical behavior and effective communication both within and across teams.
More than 800 students participated in the challenge this year with eight high schools and four middle schools winning in the end. The competition was open to all high school and middle school students and expanded into Imperial, San Diego, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
The San Diego Mayor’s office has invited Del Norte High School, the first place team, to visit with the Mayor Kevin Faulconer for Trophy presentation.
Both Del Norte High School, first place and Westview High School, second place winner, will advance to the California Cyber Innovation Challenge in June 23-25 2017.
Again this is not possible without our generous Sponsors contributions, so THANK YOU all!
