The clock is ticking down. The pressure is on. Decisions need to be made. Who will make the final call? Will their efforts be enough? Every day, a team prepares to battle its opponents, and the playing field is never even. This is not a sporting event – this is network defense. This is pen testing. This is cybersecurity. These high-pressure situations demand agile, creative, and collaborative participants who are well-trained, inquisitive, and relentless in their pursuit to safeguard the nation’s security. Because of the high demand for IT and cybersecurity professionals, we must encourage students to remain passionate about their STEM classes and leadership.

From private industry to K-12 staff, to higher education and the military, to local, state, and Federal government, the United States must recognize our youth for their skills, and interest in STEM. This includes rewarding their efforts with paid professional opportunities, scholarships, and incentives that lead them to a meaningful career in STEM. The 2018 Cyber Signing Day elevates young leaders, showcases their STEM backgrounds, and highlights the industry’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, and retaining skilled workers.  Featuring high-energy music, a dazzling light display, special guests, and on-stage recognition, the 2018 Cyber Signing Day demonstrates that excellence is not limited to sports teams; to practice, to achieve, and to compete in STEM demands rigor, integrity, and discipline, too.

Note: This luncheon will take place during the 2018 NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference as part of its attendees’ agenda. For more information about the conference, please visit:  www.k12cybersecurityconference.org/.
