The CyberXchange 2016 Hack-a-thon aspires to create an opportunity for ethical hacking to be accepted, practiced and demonstrated for the purpose of understanding what it takes to protect and secure critical information and assets. One key initiative is to foster an environment that creates child online protection through education.
