The "must-attend" student competition in international cybersecurity policy. Register your team by 5 March 2017.
We frequently hear the terms “Cyber 9/11” and “Digital Pearl Harbor,” but what might policymakers do the day after a crisis?
In the Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge, students work in teams of four to tackle a major cyberattack, respond to evolving situations, and develop policy recommendations. Hosted by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and the Atlantic Council, the 9/12 Cyber Student Challenge is a one-of-a-kind competition designed to provide students across academic disciplines with a deeper understanding of the policy challenges associated with cyber crisis and conflict.
In addition to the competition in Geneva, Switzerland, the Atlantic Council hosts the US Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge in Washington, DC on 17-18 March 2017, and the first-ever Asia-Pacific competition in Sydney, Australia in September 2017.
Students currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, professional, or law program, including students in military academies, on the date of the registration deadline are eligible to compete. We also welcome competitors who have participated in the Student Challenge in previous years.
In order to compete for a spot at the Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge, all registered teams must submit their answers to the three questions outlined below by Sunday, 5 March 2017. Each answer should be 200 words or less. Please submit your answers to Anni Piiparinen of the Atlantic Council’s Cyber Statecraft Initiative. You may register your team before submitting your answers.
Register your team by 5 March 2017 in order to participate in the European edition of Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge on 20-21 April 2017.
