Since 2013, the Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge has engaged over one thousand students from universities in the United States, Europe, Middle East and Indo-Pacific. Each year, it also convenes senior professionals in cybersecurity and expert mentors from across the world to interact with students and help them develop valuable skills in cyber strategy, policy analysis and presentation.
