PARTNER WITH CYBERTITAN!
Canada’s National Cyber Security Youth and Education Initiative
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN AFFILIATING YOUR ORGANIZATION WITH CANADA’S CYBERTITAN PROGRAM?
There is real value in having your name associated with a program that is inspiring high school and middle school students toward careers in cyber security or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to Canada’s future.
The Information and Communications Technology Council’s (ICTC) CyberTitan operates in affiliation with the (US) Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot Program which is presented by the Northrop Grumman Foundation.
CyberPatriot’s cyber security defense challenge started in 2009 and, over the years, a few Canadian schools and teams have competed and done well. We wanted to bring this opportunity to more Canadian students, to provide them with a chance to participate with more than 5,000 teams in a unique and successful competition that will excite and motivate them about cyber and STEM education and careers! They have a chance to be among 22,000 cyber ninjas learning how to protect our systems and defend our networks!
This past year, we had 450 Canadian cyber ninjas competing (90 CyberTitan teams) over 4 grueling months to secure 1 of 10 tops spots at the National Finals! We’re looking forward to growing the teams for the 2018-19 school season as well as continuing the excitement as we introduce the 2nd annual CyberTitan National Competition Finals in May 2019! As a partner, you can help it happen!
BENEFITS OF BEING A PARTNER – The benefits of being a CyberTitan partner are significant. Depending on the level of partnership you choose, you will have access to thousands of students, bright competitors, coaches and mentors to share your story and communicate why cyber security skills are critical and the role your organization is playing to build tomorrow’s cyber workforce.
HELP GROW THE CYBER WORKFORCE – CyberTitan competitors are tech-savvy and are in many cases looking for a future in ICT. Their exposure to what you offer may be the answer you are looking for in building your workforce. Do you have an internship or co-op program or any open entry-level ICT positions? What better pool of candidates could you find than the students who learn and demonstrate the outstanding cyber, problem solving, teamwork, and leadership skills provided by the CyberTitan program?
MAKE A DIFFERENCE! – Perhaps the most important reason to be a CyberTitan partner is that it puts you and your organization in an exclusive cadre of organizations who are doing the right thing to help promote and improve STEM and cyber education throughout Canada and you are helping to grow the next generation of cyber professionals!
