Cyber Solutions Showcase
Applications open September 3rd!
Are you an IU student preparing for a career in cybersecurity? The Cyber Solutions Showcase is a fun way to explore innovative ideas, gain experience, and forge important career connections.
Here’s how it works. You’ll identify a cybersecurity problem faced by individuals or organizations, describe the potential solution, and then envision a business built around bringing that solution to market.
The Cyber Showcase isn’t a competition. It’s a chance to showcase your learning and your personal potential to a respected panel of innovators, entrepreneurs, and cybersecurity experts. You’ll get feedback on your idea, and you’ll form new mentoring relationships. Most importantly, you’ll gain experience in the problem-solving world of your future career—not to mention confidence, networking, and leadership skills.
Register your intent to participate (along with an abstract of your idea) by October 1. Based on your abstract, we’ll assign you a mentor from NSWC Crane to support you as you develop the idea. You’ll have three weeks to create a one-page overview of the problem, solution, and business, along with a slide deck to show during your presentation to the panel. See our tips below to help you prepare. Materials are due October 25.
Then, on October 29, all the participants will present their cyber solutions to our panel. We’ll nerd out together over all the cool ideas! You’ll get a certificate, you’ll make important career connections, and you’ll have a blast.
