The competition is the ‘brainchild’ of the Air Force Association, and national outreach was made possible by Northrop Grumman, sponsor of the CyberPatriot Program. Students compete in two parallel competitions: Open Division and All Service JROTC/CAP Division. MMA is represented in the All Service JROTC, among 661 other national schools. Every Monday through Friday the MMA CyberPatriots are hard at it, learning the latest ins and outs of Network Management…what types of irregularities and ‘hacking’ techniques to investigate in their quest to identify and eliminate intrusive threats to computer networks and resultant devastation to corporations and human life.
