2020 Winter Cyber GAmes

 December 21st, 2020 – January 31st, 2021

 

The National Cybersecurity Student Association is back with CyberXL and a new CTF game, the Secure Coding Challenge.

Every week there will be an individual challenge. Once each weekly challenge is solved, you will be entered into a raffle drawing for each week’s correct completion. All the challenges are not compounding on previous week’s work, so participants can join at any time! Only the National Cybersecurity Student Association members are eligible to win prizes. Please go to https://www.cyberstudents.org/about/ to join.

We will send you an email when the games are open!
