CyberPatriots Registration

posted in: General info | 0

Hello All,

Registration is open for the squadron’s CyberPatriot CP-XIII competition. Basic computer skills (how to navigate file systems, familiarity with Windows operating system), and a computer running Windows that is capable of virtualization are all that is required. When you join the team, you must be committed to studying the materials on Windows Server, Cisco, and Ubuntu Linux. The training coaches are 2nd Lt Michael Connell and C/Lt. Col. Sean Flynn. During the competition, we will be competing with other squadrons and schools around the country. Based on previous years, competitions are held at Newburgh Free Academy on Fridays from 3:00 PM to 10 PM; however, this might be revisited given the current pandemic. Below is a link to the current competition timeline.

Very Respectfully,

C/1st Lt Brian Connell

 

What is CyberPatriot?

At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six hour period. Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money. – CyberPatriot Website. The video below provides an overview of the program.

Good Evening,

       The Orange County Cadet Squadron is pleased to introduce its new Guest Speaker program. Each month, the squadron plans to host Aerospace and Leadership professionals during our
regular meetings. We hope to inspire our squadron members to learn about opportunities in aerospace and emergency services by connecting with those working in these careers fields. Each month a guest speaker will present about career experiences, leadership lessons, and advice for persevering in difficult times. These presentations will be facilitated discussions, and there is opportunity to ask questions. If you know of anybody that would be interested in being a guest speaker please feel free to contact me at williamnlacombe@gmail.com.

Make sure to attend our inaugural Guest Speaker session 28 July 2020 as we host Colonel David L Pond (Retired).

          Colonel David L. Pond retired on 1 April 2014 after serving nearly 30 years in the United States Air Force and Air Force Reserve. Prior to his USAF service, Colonel Pond was a Civil Air Patrol

Colonel Pond received his commission in 1985 through Air Force ROTC at the University of Connecticut. He commanded 28 combat air refueling missions in Operation DESERT STORM and served in the 89th Airlift Wing as a Special Air Missions pilot and Presidential Advance Agent for Air Force One. During Operation ENDURING FREEDOM, he led 2200 military and civilian personnel performing day-to-day operations at the premier air mobility hub supporting military operations in Afghanistan as the Vice Commander, 376th Air Expeditionary Wing, Transit Center. He retired as the Special Assistant to the Director of Regionals Affairs, Secretary of the Air Force International Affairs at the Pentagon. In civilian life, Colonel Pond is a commercial pilot for a major pilot for a major US Airline. If you have any questions about Colonel Pond please come ready to ask them at Tuesday’s meeting.
