This weekend we participated in Round 1 of the CyberPatriot contest. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school 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.
Sunday December 6th our cadets took on Round 2 of the CyberPatriot competition. The cadets had to find and remove vulnerabilities from three different systems; Windows 2008, Ubuntu, and Windows Vista. NO EASY TASK!!
They went through and worked hard to find all they could. Also included was a quiz about how to protect computers from hacking.
