Cybersecurity Challenge

In an increasingly hyperconnected world, it is critical that our networks and information systems are not left vulnerable to hackers. According to Bain & Company, losses to businesses due to cyber-attacks will account for $6 trillion by 2021, and not enough is being done to prevent this from happening. In order to predict and outsmart hackers, you must become a better one. Not to mention, you will gain invaluable exposure to the trends and professionals in one of the job market’s leading industries!

SHPE’s Cybersecurity Challenge will focus on empowering you and other STEM minds throughout the country to “Build Our Tomorrow Together.”

This event will include a virtual “capture the flag” challenge competition where you, along other participants around the country, will compete in teams to complete a series of interactive challenges within the shortest amount of time. Mentors, workshops, and networking events will allow you to build your network, improve your skills, and win cash prizes!

Prizes: $1,000 in Raffle Prizes and $4,000 in Competition Prizes!
