What is the Mayors Cyber Cup?
The California Mayors Cyber Cup are regional competitions across California where cyber teams compete for their city to bring home the coveted perpetual trophy.
Why is This Important?
Cyber competitions are activities that bring cybersecurity awareness to communities and build strong and ethical character in the students who participate. This, in turn, helps build a future cyber workforce for all cities in California.
Who Should Attend?
The Mayors Cyber Cup is open to any team, not just those registered with the AFA for CyberPatriot. Click or touch each item below to see why you should attend.
Local and regional officials should attend and encourage their staff to attend. This helps understand the importance of developing these programs in your communities. Building cybersecurity awareness at the junior high and high school level spreads that awareness across your community and into local business.
Experience the benefit of having a cyber competition team at your school by speaking with the kids participating in this event. California Cyberhub advisors and staff will be on hand to help get you plugged into our wide network of support and community. That makes starting and hosting teams much easier than doing it on your own.
After seeing the impact these programs have on the kids and coaches, you will be sponsoring a team before you know it and encouraging your tech employees to act as mentors for your sponsored team. Nothing beats the prestige of your team bringing home the Mayors Cup to your city.
You don't think you are technical enough to be a cyber team coach? If you have a passion for bringing the best out in a group of young cyber competitors then you have what it takes to be a coach. Cyberhub has established a growing network of volunteer advisors and support who were just like you when they started. Attend, feel the excitement, see the impact then talk to a Cyberhub volunteer or staff to get started.
