January 23, 2021


Hi Everyone,


This year’s Cyberchallenge will be held online, January 23, 2021.


If interested, complete this form by *DECEMBER 16*:



Want to earn a 4-8 month paid intern/coop position in Cybersecurity?

What:  One-day cyber security challenge to win one of several cybersecurity intern/coop positions
When:  Saturday January 23, 2021
Where:  Online
Who:  Three teams of  4 students (undergrad/grad) from Carleton competing in the Regional event

Cyber Security Challenge Canada will host the event online on Saturday January 23, 2021  This is the fifth year that this event has taken place.

Teams of up to 4 students will compete to recon a vulnerable computer network, break through the cyber defenses, take control of the systems, and advise the company on how to defend against cyber attacks.  Finalists will then do remote interviews with the sponsoring companies.

As prizes, sponsors have each committed to offering fully paid intern/coop position in their IT Security departments, doing serious IT security work (starting at a mutually convenient date and lasting 4 to 8 months depending on the student’s schedule).

Carleton can enter THREE teams of students.  Only students who are seriously interested in an internship and are eligible to work in Canada should participate.  The level of knowledge required is probably at the 3rd/4th year level with some security/linux knowledge, and preference will be given to students meeting these criteria if more than 12 students are interested.



– comprised of up to 4 students (undergrad/grad)

– teams must have at least 50% undergrad students as active members of the team on the day of the event

– all members must be enrolled as full-time students in the January 2021 semester
