Post Date:07/21/2017 10:15 AM

Virginia (and six other states) has partnered with the SANS Institute (The nation’s premier cyber training organization) to offer a FREE Cyber Challenge (CyberStart) to students age 16 and older.    

The press release can be found at http://governor.virginia.gov/newsroom/newsarticle?articleId=20751  and additional details are available on the Virginia Cyber site (www.cyberva.virginia.gov).     
 
This is the first time that CyberStart has been deployed in the U.S. and will likely be the only time SANS will make it available at no cost to participants.  
 
Are you eligible?

This summer, if you are 16, or older, on the 1st of September 2017, have access to the Internet and a computer and live in one of the following states you are eligible to take part in CyberStart: Virginia, Michigan, Iowa, Hawaii, Nevada, Delaware, and Rhode Island. The CyberStart program will be available at no charge, to high school and college students.
