Title: Cybersecurity Games: Building Tomorrow’s Workforce
Synopsis: Competitions encourage players to practice, hone cybersecurity skills, and build confidence in a controlled, real-world environment. They are available for all ages and levels, for students as young as elementary school and for those considered experts in the field. Achievements may be measured and evaluated against a large field of competitors. This webinar will explore some of the key challenges and opportunities as described in the recently released whitepaper: Cybersecurity Games: Building Tomorrow’s Workforce.
The cybersecurity competitions whitepaper includes:
- Input from 28 contributors from the private and public sectors.
- Specific mention of 16 cybersecurity competitions.
- Chart with 39 cybersecurity competitions, complete with age range, location and websites.
Attendees of the webinar will learn how they can contribute to guidelines, standards, and best practices for competition players, teams, schools, sponsors and organizers to empower the public and private sectors to address the cybersecurity skills gap through competitions.
