US Cyber Challenge (USCC)
The mission of U.S. Cyber Challenge (USCC) is to significantly reduce the shortage in the cyber workforce by serving as the premier program to identify, attract, recruit and place the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. USCC’s goal is to find 10,000 of America’s best and brightest to fill the ranks of cybersecurity professionals where their skills can be of the greatest value to the nation.
USCC Summer Camps feature one week of specialized cyber security training that includes workshops, a job fair, and a culminating “Capture the Flag” competition. The workshops are lead by college faculty, top SANS Institute instructors, and cyber security experts from the community. The workshops and presentations focus on a variety of topics ranging from intrusion detection, penetration testing and forensics. Participants can also participate in a job fair that provides them the opportunity to meet with USCC sponsors and discuss potential employment. The weeklong program ends with a competitive “Capture the Flag” competition and an awards ceremony attended by notables in the cyber security industry and government.
