The Grissom JROTC Cyberpatriot Teams are nationally and state-ranked teams that focus on securing workstations, servers, and networks. Competitions are typically on Sundays and last 6 hours. During competition, members must work to find and fix vulnerabilities and harden their system while maintaining critical services.

Last year our varsity team placed 2nd in state in platinum tier and qualified to fly an all-expenses paid trip to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition.  Our junior varsity team placed 1st place in state in gold tier.

Our teams practice Wednesdays after school, and Fridays during Tiger Time. Cadets are also expected to study on their own throughout the week.

CyberPatriot is open to any cadets willing to study and work hard. Cadets interested in joining CyberPatriot need to see C/MSG Kristen Herder.
