CyberThon is a community event designed to give high school and college students hands-on experience in cyber defense and engagement procedures with instruction from active industry experts. Cybersecurity professionals from DoD cyber operations and training commands in Northwest Florida volunteer to mentor and participate in this cyber education and awareness showcase event, created to grow Pensacola’s IT and Cybersecurity workforce. Cyber experts are needed to fulfill critical security missions, so by partnering as a community and involving students, a cyber-skilled workforce pipeline can be developed for local, high demand careers.
The second annual CyberThon is a 2 ½ day event set for January 22-24, 2016 at the National Flight Academy.
