Virtual training: e-sports and & nbsp; cybersecurity
Unusual simulators and & nbsp; online training at & nbsp; five-day training camp & nbsp; & mdash; far from & nbsp; the only way to use modern technologies in the pre-conscription training of schoolchildren.

Esports develops the speed of reaction and & nbsp; assimilation of information, trains the ability to think strategically and & nbsp; make tactical decisions quickly, attentiveness, the ability to work effectively in a & nbsp; team and & nbsp; predict the actions of rivals. All these qualities are necessary for both a conscript and a professional soldier. In addition, certain genres of computer games often imitate real combat situations and & nbsp; require the player to be able to command a detachment or even an entire army.
Virtual battles are of particular importance for cadets and & nbsp; junior soldiers & nbsp; & mdash; guys who are undergoing military training on a & nbsp; permanent basis. For them, the Moscow Center “ Patriot.Sport '' organizes separate competitions: the tournament Cybercadets and & nbsp; Youth Army Cup , in which thousands of schoolchildren participate annually.
On the basis of the Department of Information Systems of the Ministry of Defense & nbsp; RF there is a platform “ Cyberpatriot '' , which unites state and & nbsp; private organizations that implement various programs and & nbsp; projects in & nbsp; the field of cybersport and & nbsp; cybersecurity. Summer 2021 Cyberpatriot and & nbsp; Moscow Center “ Patriot.Sport '' organized a cybersport tournament “ CYBERARMY '' at & nbsp; one of the & nbsp; sites of the International Military and Technical Forum Army-2021. Moscow cadets, youth soldiers and & nbsp; representatives of the Russian movement of schoolchildren competed in & nbsp; tank simulator Worls of & nbsp; Tanks and & nbsp; shooter Valorant. Everyone could watch the competition on the & nbsp; big screen.
A separate area of work of the Cyberpatriot & nbsp; & mdash; hands-on cybersecurity & nbsp; competition … Their & nbsp; members get access to a & nbsp; network that mimics a typical computer network of any large organization. Their & nbsp; task & nbsp; & mdash; find vulnerabilities in the & nbsp; network and & nbsp; eliminate them. One of the & nbsp; largest in & nbsp; 2020 & ndash; 2021 academic year was the & nbsp; cybersecurity competition 'Defense in Depth' organized by the Moscow Center “ Patriot.Sport '' with the support of the Department of Information Systems of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation & nbsp; and & nbsp; Research and Production Association “ Echelon ''. More than 100 teams from & nbsp; 27 & nbsp; cities of Russia took part in them. Young specialists performed tasks on & nbsp; steganography and & nbsp; cryptography, identified vulnerabilities in & nbsp; programs, were engaged in network administration and & nbsp; information search in & nbsp; open sources. According to the & nbsp; results of the competition, one of the & nbsp; prize places in the & nbsp; category & laquo; Juniors & raquo; was taken by the team of the Moscow school number & nbsp; 1770.
