Cyber Combo

Cybersecurity is one of the most in-demand fields today, which means great job opportunities and terrific pay!  For students interested in pursuing a career in software and technology, cybersecurity offers an unmatched opportunity to work in a dynamic environment and earn a better than competitive salary. 

GCP’ Cyber Combo offers high school juniors and seniors two programs to introduce them to the world of cybersecurity. 

Capture the Flag – Teams of students use cybersecurity tools and techniques to find hidden flags. Teams of up to 4 students will have a total of 2 hours to capture as many flags as they can. The 2 hours can be accomplished at the team’s convenience during a weeklong time period (Monday, October 23, 2023 through Thursday, October 26, 2023).

Cybersecurity Career Conversations – Want to hear what it’s really like to work in cybersecurity? Get the truth from the pros who do it every day! “Career Conversations” is your chance to virtually meet local professionals and see if a cybersecurity career is right for you. Our Cybersecurity Career Conversation will take place live on Tuesday, October 17, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. (EST).

The Cyber Combo wraps up with an awards ceremony on Tuesday, October 31, 2023 from 11:00 – 11:30 a.m. (EST) where we’ll be awarding the winners of the Capture the Flag competition.
