Lee Navy JROTC CyberPatriots

The Lee NJROTC recently competed in its first CyberPatriot national cyber defense competition. CyberPatriot is designed to inspire students to consider careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Team Coach and JROTC teacher Maj Alex Hult stated, “CyberPatriot is about defending computers and networks and it is really the opposite of computer hacking.” For the eight Lee NJROTC team members, it isn’t as much about winning in their first competition as it is about working with scenarios that teach them how to locate, identify, repair and defend computers, servers, and networks.
