Cybersecurity Challenge

In an increasingly hyperconnected world, it is critical that our networks and information systems are not left vulnerable to hackers. In 2021 the United States experienced one of the biggest cybersecurity threats its ever faced with the Colonial Pipeline hack. In order to predict and outsmart hackers, you must become a better one.
