The competition will be powered by SAIC’s CyberNEXS, a comprehensive cyber training, certification, and exercise model helping participants build the skills necessary to become successful cybersecurity professionals and protect critical data assets. The qualification rounds test cyber defense skills including hardening systems against vulnerabilities, maintaining critical services, and timely and effective communications. The finals will consist of a six hour defense-oriented battle, where observers will see a live cyber exercise occur with access to a real time score board and subject matter experts will be on hand to describe the competition.  

"SAIC is thrilled to launch the inaugural Utah Cyber Defense Challenge and Symposium," said Beard. "Cyber challenges like this enable valuable public-private collaboration across markets around a vital national security initiative, our future cyber workforce. It is imperative we provide hands-on competitions to keep our professionals sharp, trained, educated and energized to perform in the face of evolving threats."
