Community Involvement

We recognize the importance of being involved in the community that’s supported us. We couldn’t have grown the tiny computer repair service we started out as, had it not been for the support of those around us.

Now we’re giving back.

Spotlight: Ramona High’s Cyber Defense Team

In fall of 2012, we were asked to help teach information security and cyber defense – which is basically anti-hacking and computer protection – to students in Ramona High School’s NJROTC program. Their skills are then put to the test in the CyberPatriot and San Diego Mayor’s Cyber Cup (SDMCC) competitions. Through these competitions, students can earn scholarships and internships in the field of information technology. More importantly, students learn valuable skills and receive hands-on experience securing workstations and servers against hackers.

In 2013, we helped to facilitate the set-up of an 8 PC computer lab at the Ramona Teen Center, where students could meet after school to practice in a supervised environment. Using desktop computers donated to Ramona High School by the Medical Board of California, along with networking equipment provided by BCR Global, we were able to configure a computer lab that allows students to run hacking and security simulations in a virtualized environment.

 

As of Fall 2014, we’ve agreed to a third year of teaching and supporting these high-school students as they prepare for another season of competition.
