The Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge is the only student competition devoted to high level policy recommendations for day-after responses to a major cyber incident. The annual event is the “must-attend” student event in international cybersecurity policy. By participating, students benefit from experts at the highest levels of the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and intelligence community and compete to provide the best policy recommendations. The competition will take place on February 7-8, 2014 in Washington DC.
This competition promotes awareness of cybersecurity policy issues, while providing students and experts an opportunity to network and develop new ideas for the future of cybersecurity policy. Throughout the competition, university students will confront a serious cyber security breach by composing their ideal cyber policy recommendations and justifying the decision-making process used to rank priorities. During the course of the competition, the scenario will continue to evolve, forcing advancing teams to focus on key priorities during a major cyber attack against the United States. By participating in the competition, students get the unique opportunity to apply their policy recommendations by briefing real global experts in cybersecurity. Their performance is evaluated by some of the world’s leading cybersecurity policy experts who will participate.
Graduate and undergraduate students from US and international universities who are interested in the disciplines of cybersecurity policy, international relations, computer science, law, and other related fields are encouraged to apply to compete in teams of four individuals.
