Cyber Cup

Simultaneous Regional Competitions as One Event

What is the Mayors Cyber Cup?

The California Mayors Cyber Cup are regional competitions across California where cyber teams compete for their city to bring home the coveted perpetual trophy.

Why is This Important?

Cyber competitions are activities that bring cybersecurity awareness to communities and build strong and ethical character in the students who participate. This, in turn, helps build a future cyber workforce for all cities in California.
