NCAE Cyber Games Competitions
NCAE Cyber Games is a competition for students who have never competed before, creating an on-ramp for interested students who don’t know where to start.

Have you ever thought about signing up for a cyber competition? Even for a cybersecurity pro, they can be daunting if you’ve never tried one before. How do they work? Do I need to know programming? What if I don’t have a team?

The National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity (NCAE-C) program wants to make it easier for first-time competitors to get involved in the cyber competition world, so they are launching the NCAE Cyber Games: the first team competition for students who have never competed before.

We are a designated NCAE-C institution, and I am putting together a team to compete in the NCAE Cyber Games. It’s the perfect chance to learn how competitions work (and how to win), why they’re important (they’re great for your resume), and how to build your skills (including the all-important soft skills).

What do you need to get started? Curiosity and willingness to learn. If you would like to find out more about this program and possibly join the team, visit (click the “Login” button to register) or email Tim Henry at [email protected]. Competitions are an essential part of the cybersecurity field, and I’ll hope you’ll consider giving it a try.
