CYBER PROGRAMS

Cadets in Virginia Wing are learning about cyber operations and security through various ways! 

Virginia Wing's Cyber Programs Officer is Major Nicholas Rushizky

CYBER PATRIOT
Over 8 squadrons in the wing compete in the Air Force Association's CyberPatriot, the national youth cyber education program. Several squadrons have more than one team of cadets competing, spending many hours each week preparing for their competition weekends, which start in October and end in April with the final's competition. Adults in CAP and also experts in the field support our teams, mentoring and providing guidance outside of competitions to help ensure their success. 

CYBER CAMP
For three years, the wing has provided a weekend cyber camp open to all cadets and adults in the wing to come learn about cyber skills for their personal and professional lives. Members learn how to start a CyberPatriot team at their squadrons even if they have no adults with computer, IT, or cyber experience. Other wings members have attended the cyber camp and now are seeking to establish the same within their own wings through out the Middle East Region. 

WORKING GROUP
The wing has a cyber programs working-group that collaborates on CyberPatriot, cyber camp, cyber programs, and more. If your squadron does not have a representative in this group, please contact Major Rushizky to be included!
