Leidos will continue to sponsor the Air Force Association’s cyber education program for the eighth consecutive year.
AFA said Monday Leidos has supported CyberPatriot as a Cyber Silver sponsor since the program’s inception in 2009 to help develop students’ cyber skills and interest in science, technology, engineering and math careers.
“We at Leidos are very proud of our founding sponsorship of the critically important STEM event and pleased [to] continue that support,” said Chuck Heflebower, senior vice president and Air Force strategic account executive at Leidos.
Leidos hosts the Digital Forensics Event at the CyberPatriot National Finals Competition to expose students to new cybersecurity areas that are not included in other events of the competition.
Other CyberPatriot sponsors include Northrop Grumman, AT&T, Cisco, Microsoft, Facebook, Splunk, Symantec, the Department of Homeland Security, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Air Force Reserve, Riverside Research and others.
