Space & Cybersecurity Symposium
Cal Poly hosted a series of solutions-focused conversations on the intersection of space ad cybersecurity. The webinars featured keynote interviews and panel sessions with leaders from the United States Space Force, industry, and higher education.
Each year, Cal Poly students, from both technical and creative disciplines, develop a new cybercrime scenario for the California Cyber Innovation Challenge (CCIC). The scenarios engage youth in modern technical problem sets and prepare them for future education and career pathways in cyber.
The 5th annual California Cyber Innovation Challenge was held online and broadcast live on Twitch. Teams completed in a satellite constellation hacking challenge by searching through 3D evidence sites online and analyzing digital evidence.
The 4th annual CCIC took place online for the first time in 2020. Over 400 students completed in Space-themed satellite hacking challenge.
As attacks on global healthcare continued to rise, the CCIC 2019 scenario was designed based on biohacking crime involving implanted medical devices.
In the shadow of the WannaCry ransomware attack, the CCIC 2018 featured a race against the clock after a hospital data breach.
