Cyber Fusion began Friday at VMI.

This is the first year for the event which combines an invitation-only cyber competition with learning and career opportunities in the cyber world. There are speeches and panels today, and on Saturday a cyber competition among teams from 11 invited colleges and universities.

“The commercial sector, the government sector, all of them are really taking cyber security seriously right now," Joe Pine of Booz Allen Hamilton said. "And we need as much talent out there as we can to help solve the big problems.”

The champion team receives the Cyber Cup from Gov. McAuliffe later this year.
