CyberTitan is one of Canada’s largest cyber defense competitions. The competition places teams of high school and middle school students in Canadian real world situations. The students are in the position of newly hired IT professionals. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a nine-hour period. From October to February, teams take part in the CyberPatriot competition and compete worldwide with other high school and middle school teams. The top 10 ranked Canadian Teams go head to head online for the coveted title of CyberTitan National Champions.
CPI, in conjunction with ICTC, hosted the four southern Ontarion teams on the University of Waterloo campus while they competed in this illustrious event. As part of CPI's commitment to addressing the cybersecurity talent gap and supporting students, CPI believes that encouraging young people to actively engage with cybersecurity and privacy issues at the high school and middle school level is crucial to stimulating the talent pipeline for post-secondary enrolment.
We would like to thank Rogers, Magnet Forensics, and InspireTech Canada for generously sponsoring this event, in part.
