We Need Defenders!!!

Ransomware, malware, identity theft, cyber terrorism, nation-state espionage. The systems that protect our critical infrastructure, power our economy, and keep our health and safety secure are under constant cyber attack. As these systems become more interconnected through the Internet of Things, our defense depends on people like YOU!

1NTERRUPT is a hands-on cyber security event for students to learn white hat concepts from the experts. You will then put your learned skills to the test in the wifi Treasure Hunt to find the evil-doers and more or less save the world. Act as a member of a team of penetration testers – professional white hat hackers – who have been “contracted by executive management” in a secret hack mission. Learn, get creative, and meet some cyber pros.

Organized Crime. Espionage. Cyber Terrorism.

These are big problems today. People like you are needed to fill over 1 million jobs!
