2020 CyberForce logo

On July 21, 2020, the Department of Energy (DOE) opened registration for the 2020 CyberForce Competition™, the sixth iteration of the Department’s collegiate-level cyber defense competition designed to inspire and develop the next generation of energy sector cybersecurity professionals.

The competition has historically invited teams from colleges and universities nationwide to compete in-person at their nearest participating National Laboratory, but given the current global health crisis, DOE is taking a new approach to ensure the safety of participants, volunteers, and National Lab staff. The 2020 CyberForce Competition will be held on November 14 completely in a virtual environment, with individual competitors rather than teams representing their respective academic institutions.
