The National Cyber League (NCL) is opening its virtual defensive and offensive puzzle-based, capture-the-flag style cybersecurity competition to high school students.
Registration begins Feb. 26.
Through the engaging platform of the competition, players will have simulated experiences where players can prove their talent by performing tasks to track down hackers. Some of those tasks could include grabbing metadata from an image to track where the hackers have been or analyzing forensic log files to identify who infiltrated data from the a network.
Each challenge of the game revolves around skills used by actual cybersecurity professionals. Afterwards, all players receive an NCL Scouting Report that identifies their strengths and weaknesses. This report shows players their growth and pinpoints areas to work on. Eventually, these students will be able to include those NCL stats in their resumes to validate their growth and skills in cybersecurity.
Regular Season registration is $25 and runs from Feb. 26 to March 25. Late registration is $35.
