New York City Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge
On 13-14 October 2023, Columbia SIPA will host its eighth annual Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge in-person. Started by the Atlantic Council in 2012, Cyber 9/12 is a one-of-a-kind competition designed to provide students across academic disciplines with a deeper understanding of the policy challenges associated with cyber crisis and conflict.
The competition gives students a unique opportunity to interact with expert mentors and high-level cyber professionals while developing valuable skills in policy analysis and presentation. The students have to tackle challenges like assessing the impact of a major cyber attack, thinking through attribution and national responsibility, and response options for all branches of the government as well as the private sector.
The event in October will feature two days of competition, keynote speakers, technology demonstrations, and career networking opportunities.
