The clock is ticking down. The pressure is on. Decisions need to be made. Who will make the final call?
Will their efforts be enough? Every day, a team prepares to battle its opponents. The playing field is never
even. This is not a sporting event – this is network defense. This is pen testing. This is cybersecurity.
These high-pressure situations demand agile, creative, and collaborative participants who are welltrained,
inquisitive, and relentless in their pursuit of vulnerabilities in order to safeguard information and
infrastructure. Because of the high demand for IT and cybersecurity professionals, we must encourage
students to remain passionate about their STEM classes and leadership.
The Inaugural Cyber Signing Day elevates young leaders, showcases their STEM backgrounds, and highlights the industry’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, and retaining talent. Featuring high-energy music, special guests, and on-stage recognition, the 2018 Cyber Signing Day demonstrates that extracurricular excellence is not limited to athletics; to practice, to achieve, and to compete in cybersecurity is a co-curricular exercise that demands rigor, integrity, and discipline, too.
