Cyberfusion

Virginia Military Institute is proud to co-host this event with Senator Mark R. Warner and Governor Ralph Northam.

This invitation-only event combines a collegiate cyber competition with learning and career opportunities that emphasize Cyber Fusion. Commonwealth Cyber Fusion is an official, nonpartisan, U.S. Senate event.

A National Priority

Cybersecurity is one of the nation’s and Commonwealth’s top priorities. For Virginia to continue leading in this rapidly evolving space, we need to develop a sustainable talent pipeline capable of providing skilled, industry-ready workers to meet this increasing demand. Cyber Fusion is the organized integration of data and tools from disparate sources of support for secure and resilient system lifecycles.
