Cybersecurity Summit and U.S. Cyber Challenge 2022

This event qualifies for 4 CLPs

Building the Cyber Environs: Tools, Technology and Workforce


The shift to digital, cloud, AI and other technologies has given rise to a variety of cyberattacks with an alarming cost.  Government and industry continue to face critical security and risk issues with increased cyber threats, supply chain and cloud vulnerabilities, ransomware, phising, stolen credentials and identities, new sophisticated attack approaches and other cyber-types of attacks.  The host of new and evolving cybersecurity threats has the information security industry on high alert. 


The Cybersecurity Summit and U.S. Cyber Challenge not only will address the cybersecurity issues and threats of today with presentations from government and industry cyber leaders, but also will provide a special dedication and awards ceremony to the winners of the U.S. Cyber Challenge. 


The U.S. Cyber Challenge serves as a premier program to identify, attract, recruit, train, and place the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.  Top performers from different colleges and universities are offered award winning training from top instructors on new concepts and approaches.  During the cyber camps in the summer, those who qualify participate in discussions with leaders in the cyber field and teams are formed where they compete against others in the region in a "capture-the-flag" competition where the winners win scholarships and prizes.  These winners are acknowledged at the Cybersecurity Summit in October by representatives from the White House.  The mission of this initiative is to fill the workforce gap of cybersecurity professionals through a process of assessment, training and employment networking.


This event is being done in collaboration with ACT-IAC and the Center for Internet Security (CIS).
