"The Cybersecurity Championship Cup program is designed to encourage collegiate participation in all cybersecurity-based competitions - not just specific events," said Dr. Gregory White, Director of the Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security. "The program is similar to the FedEx or Sprint Cups - teams gain points for participation in placement in disparate cybersecurity competitions."

The cup competition is supported by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Director Cyber Security Division, and is managed by the Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security at the University of Texas at San Antonio. There is a growing need for cybersecurity specialists - both by the private sector and the federal government - as foreign cyberattacks continute to warrant great concern.
