ANN ARBOR – Michigan Cyber Patriot program teaches middle and high school students not only how to protect themselves online from cyber predators, but also provides a grounding for them to the high demand job world of cyber warriors.

In this video, Michigan State Director Tamara Shoemaker names the recent award winners for Cyber Patriot competitions, and also provides details on summer camps that will be held statewide – and virtually – to teach these grade school students cyber security.

Our Mission is to increase the number of Michigan Schools participating in the national CyberPatriot Program. Using this after school program we have inspired students to purse the exciting career of a Cybersecurity professional. MCISSE supports the teachers, schools, and the professional mentors. We are a coalition of Colleges and Universities dedicated to showing students a clear pathway from High School onto an Associates, Bachelors, Masters, or Doctoral degree in Cybersecurity, earning cybersecurity certifications all along the way. 

We do this by providing in-person and on-line awareness presentations and training session across the state. We hold multiple Summer Camps across the state and hold an annual Awards event celebrating the student’s success. We attend cybersecurity associations recruiting volunteers for the mentoring program, and to increase corporate support of this program. It is our hope to have enough industry support to cover our expenses and to make sure that every school in Michigan can participate in CyberPatriot has the chance.
