Mr. Cook

As Quarter 1 winds down in Networking, CyberPatriots is kicking off for the 2019-2020 school year at the Florence Career Center.  (CyberPatriot – The National Youth Cyber Education Program). “At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition is a cyber defense competition that puts teams of 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 (uscyberpatriot.org).”  CyberPatriot was established by the Air Force Association.  The Northrop Grumman Foundation is the Presenting Sponsor for CyberPatriot.  “CyberPatriot was created to inspire K-12 students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future (uscyberpatriot.org).” 

 The Florence Career Center has a team competing in the Cyber Defense Competition for the 10th straight year.
