Bay Area Cyber Competitions


Established in 2016, our region is comprised the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas interconnected by our common passion for Cybersecurity.

Our students, staff and faculty are in Middle School, High School and Community College. We have a growing connection with our communities, industry and beyond who are essential to ensuring long-term support for the program.

Our program is a National Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2018 Champion, Data Privacy Day Champion 2019 and Center of Excellence since July 2018 as awarded by the Air Force Association. Our program is also the lead for SkillsUSA California's Cybersecurity competition.

Our Mission is to at least make our students, and by extension our communities, safer than when they joined. At best, we guide students towards a career in Information Technology and Cybersecurity.

Any Middle or High School team within our geographical region is welcomed to join us. Regarding CyberPatriot, teams can add themselves to our CyberPatriot COE through team creation process on the AFA website. All Middle and High schools who register CyberPatriot teams under our COE ARE REQUIRED to signup on our Resources page.

Any team outside our geographical region is welcomed to contact us for support in the competitions create or participate in.​
