Cybersecurity Competition Club

Cyberspace has become the battle ground of crime. Business and government secrets are mishandled and leaked to our rivals, our individual privacy is being trampled. Strengthening the security and resilience of our nation's cyberspace has become critical. Huntsville High's security club and competition teams are helping to develop our nation's cyber workforce by teaching students the skills they need to help secure the nation's cyberspace.  We compete in both local and international competitions include the AFA's CyberPatriot program, PowerUP's CyberUp Games, the National Cyber Leagues Fall and Spring Competitions and many local Capture the Flag events.
