Priority and Emerging Sectors
Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) encompasses all rapidly emerging, evolving, and converging computer, software, networking, telecommunications, Internet, programming, information systems and digital media technologies. It is an umbrella or superset term that includes many different competing subset terminologies. ICT is a comprehensive framework for organizing these inter-related, interdependent, and rapidly changing technologies and high-tech fields and for organizing the ICT workforce, which spans across organizations of all sizes - in all industries. The ICT term and framework are widely used outside the U.S., by institutions including the United Nations, European Union, World Bank, International Telecommunications Union, and others. ICT is recognized in many global economies as a strategically important industry and employment sector that is a major driver of economic growth.
You are cordially invited to attend the California Mayors Cyber Cup where cyber teams represent their city to compete for the regional Mayors Cyber Cup. The winner will take home the coveted cup to their mayor and city hall officials! Teams in each region will represent their respective city and compete in a 4-hour academic cyber challenge mitigating cyber vulnerabilities in a critical infrastructure scenario. Teams will be competing live across the state with an active scoreboard recording their successful endeavors! The California Cyberhub, California Community Colleges, and Doing What Matters for Jobs and the Economy sponsor the California Mayors Cyber Cup in a collaborative effort to expand cyber education and STEM pathways, support California ICT labor market demand, and support the cyber needs of our small businesses within our communities through academic and business partnerships.
