TRAIN. COMPETE. WIN.
The mission of the US Cyber Games® is to bring talented cybersecurity athletes, coaches, and industry leaders together to build an elite US Cyber Team for global cybersecurity competition.
Games, Esports, and Online Tournaments are the next evolution in preparing tomorrow's workforce.
Cyber Games are a fundamental element to developing the next generation of a diverse and well-qualified community of cybersecurity talent.
Games not only help build a better workforce, they keep the current workforce sharp and maintain a thriving community of cyber professionals prepared for what the future might hold in cyber attacks and possible disruptive innovations.
THE POWER OF GAMES IN CYBERSECURITY
While education, certification, and apprenticeship are important training instruments, games provide a safe and legal place to practice offensive and defensive techniques in a real-world environment with others.
Teamwork, Sportsmanship, and Strategy
While Hollywood likes to emphasize the lone hacker taking over the world, the reality is that cyber attack and defense are team activities. Both benefit from the power of a community-based team effort by choosing to share, contribute, and collaborate to achieve a goal or just learn something new.
Drive More Diversity
Games remove the stigma of stereotypes associated with cybersecurity and open a path for players from all kinds of backgrounds, nationalities, education levels, and age groups to learn and grow. This infusion of diverse skills and mindware will contribute to up-leveling our cybersecurity workforce.
Safe Places to Attack & Defend
Ever wonder why, after spending millions of dollars trying to address the cyber workforce gap, it remains years later? Security professionals lack the ability to test and stretch their skills and learn a new environment with different defenses and threats. Games offer safe and legal environments to experiment, train and learn amongst peers and mentors.
Increase the Talent Pool
Today's games can be played across a wide variety of digital platforms with some games only requiring a cell phone to participate. This ubiquitous access enables an extended population of individuals from all age groups, economic backgrounds, and skill levels to learn, compete, and grow.
