The challenge is a collaborative effort of the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development and Cal Poly, and will feature 16 teams of high school students from across the state.
“In the coming months, teams of high school students from across California will compete in timed cybersecurity challenges designed to replicate the various threats that cybersecurity professionals face, including attacks on critical infrastructure and attempted breaches of consumer data on connected devices,” a Cal Poly statement reads.
The winners of those competitions will each earn one of 16 spots for the competition.
