Todd Beamer AFJROTC cadets hone skills at Highline

Todd Beamer AFJROTC cadets spent March 25 testing their computer security skills during the 2017 Pacific Rim Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, hosted by Highline College.

Although these cadets did not compete against the college teams, a mixture of old and potential new members of Todd Beamer’s AFJROTC’s Cyber Patriot Team pitted their computer security skills against a virtual computer security program dubbed the “NICE-Challenge Project — National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education.” Cybersecurity professionals monitored the cadet’s progress in finding and correcting computer anomalies and provided helpful instruction to enhance their computer defense skills.
