Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge 2017

20 Apr 2017 - 21 Apr 2017

Geneva, Switzerland

The Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and the Atlantic Council are hosting the third annual European Cyber 9/12 Student Challenge, on 20-21 April 2017, in Geneva., Switzerland.

The student competition devoted to high-level policy recommendations for day-after responses to a major cyber incident. Throughout the competition, university students will confront a serious cyber security breach by composing their ideal cyber policy recommendations and justifying the decision-making process used to rank priorities. During the course of the competition, the scenario will continue to evolve, forcing advancing teams to focus on key priorities during a major cyber-event in Europe.

By participating in the competition, students get the unique opportunity to apply their policy recommendations by briefing real global experts in cybersecurity. Their performance is evaluated by some of the world’s leading cybersecurity policy experts who will participate.

The competition is open to undergraduate and graduate students participating in teams of up to four from universities anywhere in the world.
