Title: 5,000 + 5,000 by 2020 – The National Cybersecurity Sports Federation
Abstract: The National Science Foundation has funded a proposal to create The National Cybersecurity Sports Federation (NCSF). The primary objective of this proposal is to bring together the community of cybersecurity academic, industry and government leaders in cybersecurity competitions, to induce shared goals and values, and to create an umbrella organization for a national sport of cybersecurity. This project will enable middle schools, high schools, colleges and professionals to align cyber competitions with middle, secondary, and career/technical institutions, in sync with industry and government cybersecurity needs.
We believe under the leadership of the NCSF thousands for young people will follow a path that enables 5,000 hours of hands-on cybersecurity training before they attend college and 5,000 hours during college.
This talk will present the NCSF vision and discuss how the Cal Poly Team has been involved over the past few years, plus their Team results.
