October 28, 2021 - RESTON, VA - Today, the US Cyber Games announced the first-ever US Cyber Team, which will compete in the inaugural International Cybersecurity Challenge (ICC) in Athens, Greece in June 2022. The team was selected during Draft Day and is composed of 25 individuals, ranging in age from 18 to 26, and representing 13 different US states.
“This is a major milestone for the US Cyber Games, and I am incredibly proud of and inspired by all the cyber athletes and coaches who stepped up to participate in the events this first year,” said Jessica Gulick, founder and commissioner of the US Cyber Games. “I’m excited to see how our official US Cyber Team athletes grow their skills and their passion for cybersecurity over the next several months, and look forward to watching them compete in the ICC next summer.”
Additionally, the US Cyber Games opened its official call for sponsors today. “The US Cyber Games depend on the generosity of our corporate and university sponsors,” Gulick continued. “We all know that the success of our cybersecurity industry depends on sourcing and training talent to reduce the workforce gap.
