CyberPatriot Program with Terry Bradley

In this episode, we are joined by Terry Bradley. Terry leads a group of CyberPatriots.  ​The CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Education Program was created by the Air Force Association to inspire high school students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation's future. At the core of the CyberPatriot program is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, which challenges teams of students to resolve real-life cybersecurity situations in a virtual environment.

Those of you involved in computer security may want to consider offering to mentor. After listening to this episode, you can learn more on the program's website.
