How do ethical hackers test their talent? The National Cyber League is a one-of-a-kind virtual game that puts students in real-life situations where they have to employ what they know to succeed! Registration is $25 and closes on Sunday, March 25, at midnight EST.

By playing NCL’s Spring Season game, students can prove their talent by analyzing that intercepted network traffic and extracting information about the phone call to help the investigation.

Each challenge of the Spring Season game revolves around skills such as open source intelligence, scanning, enumeration and exploitation, password cracking, network traffic analysis, log analysis, wireless security, cryptography, and web application security, just like an actual cybersecurity professional.

All players will then be scored based on their ability to complete the tasks, their accuracy in completion, and how quickly they finish the job. Players will be separated into different brackets (Gold, Silver, Bronze) based on skill level.

Again, registration is $25 and closes on Sunday, March 25, at midnight EST. Late registration for $35 begins at 12:00 a.m. on Monday, March 26, through 11:59 p.m. EST on March 28.

You can register online for the event.
