The "must-attend" student competition in international cybersecurity policy.
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.
The Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge presents a prime opportunity for companies to engage with top policy and technical talent from around the world. We are looking for sponsors who share our goal of fostering an extraordinary pool of talent in cyberspace and shape the next generation of policymakers around the globe.
We offer multiple options partnership and benefit levels – ranging from €35,000 for global partnership sponsors to €5,000 for Silver sponsors. In recognition of your support, we will provide you and your company visibility and the opportunity to engage in the competition. We also welcome targeted contributions in support of specific parts of the competition, such as the awards ceremony and reception. To become a sponsor, please contact Mr Aapo Cederberg.
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 will hold the first-ever Asia-Pacific competition in Sydney, Australia in September 2017.
