What We Do –
The NCAE Cyber Games is all about making the world of cybersecurity easier to enter into. With our competition, we actively encourage and support the students looking to dip their toes into the industry, opening them to new paths of development, training, collaboration, and more!
With our seasoned staff, including some students and veterans in the field, we are proud to work with and provide the opportunities throughout this competition that are geared toward preparing the next generation of security specialists in North America!
– Why We Do It
With the rise of instanced attacks on infrastructure, technology, software, and more, our purpose is to prepare students to enter the cybersecurity sector in North America. The NCAE-C Cyber Games is a multi-faceted competition that is geared to facilitate an engaging, open-ended environment, putting teams across the country against one another in a tournament that culminates in a grand, collaborative, in-person experience.
This reflects the true nature of the workforce in cybersecurity: collaboration, learning, engagement, teaching, and much, much more. We always strive to ensure that our competitors have the best experience in this environment, and come out of it never feeling like they lost, but always that they won by learning something along the way.
