Congrats to our NCL Participants

⭐️ Cybersecurity All-Stars ⭐️ 

The rankings are in and the City University of Seattle’s National Cyber League Team ranked 171 out of over 4600 teams. 

Awesome job to Dan, Christa, Melissa, and their coach Greg Surber. 

National Cyber League or NCL is “the most inclusive, performance-based, learning-centered collegiate cybersecurity competition.” This competition allows for students to compete individually as well as in a team setting. It also provides hands-on experience that is resume worthy and provides a “gym” for students to test, learn, and practice in. For more general information about NCL click here.

Reach out now to Greg Surber if you’d like to be included in the next competition which take place in the Spring of 2024.

Joining Cybersecurity Club and/or the WiCyS Chapter will provide you with more cybersecurity related resources and competitions.
