Evans, will announce the program’s collaboration with Monster Government Solutions as the organizations develop CyberCompEx, a social network portal for students, professionals, employers, and other individuals involved or interested in the cybersecurity community.
“We are incredibly excited to work with Monster Government Solutions to develop CyberCompEx into an attractive and resourceful tool for all aspiring cybersecurity professionals and companies,” stated Karen Evans. “Our goal at U.S. Cyber Challenge is to find and develop future cybersecurity experts, and by offering an online network for them to interact with and learn from peers, as well as develop contacts with companies and future employers, we are continuing to expand our support of the community’s development. Having an established company like Monster Government Solutions collaborate with us will only help in bringing us to that next level of influence and support.”
