Why you should learn about cybersecurity?
  • Everyone who owns a computer or a smart device is at risk against cyberattacks

  • Learn to identify your systems’ vulnerabilities which open doors to cybercriminals
  • Learn to protect your computers against cyberattacks
   How to learn about cybersecurity?

In August 2018, the Cadet Cyber Badge and Cadet STEM Badge were introduced. These new recognition programs will motivate cadets to participate in activities like CyberPatriot, robotics, astronomy, meteorology, drones / UAVs, flight simulators, and more. Cadet Cyber and STEM Badges are authorized for wear on the CAP cadet uniform, effective 1 October 2018. See Cadet Cyber & STEM Recognition Programs CAPP 60-41 for more information (

CAPR 39-1, CAP Uniform Regulations, has been updated as of 5 March 2020 and authorizes the display of these badges on cadets' Blues uniforms.
