Experts predict there will be a global shortage of 1.8 million cybersecurity professionals by 2022. To do our part to address the cybersecurity talent shortage, we have once again partnered with the Missouri Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (MCCOE) and Cyber.org to develop the Missouri High School Cybersecurity Challenge.
Whether or not you're interested in having students compete, interested schools can still take full advantage of the educational resources for your students from Cyber.org. All of the material is presented to be used in either a traditional or a virtual classroom.
Lessons learned will include networking, programming and operating system security. Teams consist of three high school students and one adult sponsor. Participation is free to any school that is a MOREnet member. If you aren’t sure if you're a member, email us at [email protected] and we'll check for you!
