Triangle Math and Science Academy's Middle School Cyber Patriot team has advanced to the Middle School Division Semifinals of the Cyber Patriot IX competition.
Cyber Patriot is the premier national youth cyber education program created to inspire middle and high school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future.
The Cyber Patriot competition puts teams of middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services. The Middle School team successfully addressed the multiple cybersecurity scenarios presented throughout the competition, and earned their way into the Division Semifinals.
The Middle School team was recognized with a Certificate of Excellence in honor of the outstanding technical skill, problem solving, and teamwork demonstrated by advancing to the Middle School Division Semifinals. Congratulations to the Triangle Math and Science Academy Middle School team on a job well done!
