On 20 Jan, the Shorty Powers CyberPatriot team team completed round 3, or the State Round of competition. We have a high school level team consisting of: S Schofield, B Wilson, J Sun, A Lyonsford and a middle school level team consisting of A Prochaska, Y Brooks, and J Sienicki. Coach is Maj Ed Danley and Mentor is Capt Tom Schramka from the Lewis Composite Squadron.
To reach the State Round, weekly training began in September to learn the basics of Cyber Security. After a couple of practice rounds, the first two actual competition rounds were held in November and December. Each round is 6 hours of finding flaws and securing Windows desktop, Windows Server and Linux/Ubuntu images. Additionally the high school team learns Cisco network skills and those skills are put to a test with a virtual network setup.
