Youth Cyber Defender

 

Our Mission

Youth Cyber Defender is founded by a group of young students enthusiastic with cyber security. Our mission is to promote cyber security education among elementary school, middle school and high school students and use our knowledge to secure our cyber infrastructure for our community and beyond.

What is on now?

We are conducting a quick security awareness survey that can help us to better prepare for our future cybersecurity training.  Scan the QR code or click the link below:

What we've done

In the past, we trained students to participate in CyberPatriot, picoCTF and CyberStart American competitions. We regularly host educational sessions and outreach events. Of course, we also have fun team-building days!
