Calling All College & University Students – Register NOW for the Virginia Cyber Aces State Championship!

Are you interested in a career in cybersecurity? You can fill the cutting edge jobs that demand elite training and reward with significant opportunity. Our country faces increasing threats in cyberspace and there is a critical shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals to address them. Great jobs are going unfilled.


Virginia Tech and Cyber Aces are challenging college and university students across the state to register for Cyber Aces Online and compete for a chance to participate in the Virginia Cyber Aces State Championship. Registration is free and open now. Please register as soon as possible at www.cyberaces.org to begin the trainings.


The competition will address this critical skills gap. College and university students from across the state will come together, compete to win top honors, and the best performers may earn scholarships for elite training. In the near future, we plan to have a Cyber Academy in Virginia to certify those with the highest potential and aptitude for residency training and job placement.

The Virginia Cyber Aces State Championship has an online competition, with tutorials and quizzes, and a final event with head-to-head Net Wars competition. Net Wars will be held in Spring 2014 and I encourage you to register to participate in this competition.
