CyberPatriot VI Hawaii Kickoff

22 August 2013
Referentia Systems Incorporated

For the third year in a row, Referentia Systems Incorporated is hosting a kickoff for CyberPatriot. Now is the time to start ramping up and preparing Hawaii’s High School students to compete in the nation’s premier cyber defense competition. CyberPatriot is its sixth year and it continues to grow and challenge our youth to excel in the area of cyber security and other STEM disciplines. The kickoff will recap CyberPatriot V, discuss local efforts, and provide an opportunity to network with other coaches, students, and mentors.

Call for mentors. Hawaii High Schools are always in need of mentors to share their cyber security knowledge and technical skills with local students. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, this event is a good starting point.

University of Hawaii Cyber Range

The State of Hawaii Department of Defense and the University of Hawaii have partnered together to develop a cyber range and to promote cyber security readiness in the State of Hawaii.  The first cyber security exercise will be held Aug. 2-4, 2013 at the University of Hawaii Manoa Campus Center Ballroom.  We would like to invite you and any interested members of your company and the information security community here in Hawaii to actively participate as members of either the Red (attackers), Blue (defenders), White (scenarios developers/judging) or Black (infrastructure) team members.

More detailed information about the event is available on:  http://www.hawaii.edu/cyberrange including descriptions about team responsibilities, event objectives/scoring overview and a link to the signup form.  The website is being updated frequently as we gather more information.

Support Needed for CCDC Competition

A Note to All Cyber Supporters:

There is a Collegiate Cyber Competition coming up and they are looking for White Team Judges.
The At-Large CCDC will be held on March 1-3 2013.

There are three teams in these Cyber competitions.
  • Red Team - Attackers
  • Blue Team - Defense
  • White Team - Judges
The college teams will compete as Blue Teams. The Red Teams are supplied by the CCDC competition.
They will need one judge on site at all times who has a basic knowledge of Servers, Networks and Cybersecurity.  It will be up to the White Team Judges to assign and grade the injects (assignments).
Our Hawaii teams are competing in the "at-large" region of the CCDC.  This competition is run remotely with the at-large region being hosted from the University of Alaska at Fairbanks.  The White Team judges will be in-charge of managing the Honolulu Community College-UH West Oahu team which will run the competition from the Honolulu Community College campus.
