Cal Poly Pomona students can play a puzzle-solving program to discover how their gaming skills can translate to careers in cyber security and obtain scores that can grant access to additional workshops and improve their qualifications for work opportunities.
CyberStart offers educational challenges, tools and games to introduce students to cyber-related careers. Students who score well gain access to CyberStart Essentials, which provides video, audio and lab exercises on the fundamentals of technology and cyber security, preparing them to learn more advanced security skills and participate in hacking challenges.
