Cyber Competitions

What Are Cyber Competitions?

Cyber competitions challenge participants' competencies in a wide range of areas including penetration testing, forensics, and cryptography. Most competitions use a capture-the-flag (CTF) format in which competitors obtain flags by solving challenges and submit flags to score points

National Cyber League, which Nevada Cyber Club competes in each semester, features challenges in the following categories: Cyber competitions are one of the best ways to get hands-on experience in cybersecurity. Many competitions are free, so all club members are encouraged to get involved.

Competing

Information about upcoming cyber competitions and our team plans is provided at general meetings. If you know about a competition that we haven't talked about, please let us know!

Nevada Cyber Club typically pays for competitions registration fees (such as for NCL) and travel fees (such as for Wicked6 or CyberSEED) on behalf of its active members. Active membership is determined by past competition participation and meeting attendance.
