On behalf of the 2017 Cyber Cup Competition Planning Committee and our Cyber Range Sponsors Booz Allen Hamilton and Analog Devices, we would like to welcome you to the opening of the 2017 Cyber Cup Competition registration!

The 2nd Annual Cyber Cup Competition will be held during the 2017 National Cyber Summit at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, AL on June 7th and 8th to continue our objective of inspiring technical skillset development through fun security-focused competitions.

New for 2017, the Cyber Cup Competition will have both a student and professional bracket for better competition within the varying skill levels. The event will follow the same capture the flag format as last year, where teams will solve increasingly difficult challenges across numerous categories including networking, coding, cryptography, and web application hacking.

Teams from each class will participate in one of three qualification rounds and the top 15 teams from each class will qualify for the the Cyber Cup Competition Championship! Each competition will be limited to a total of 45 teams, 90 participants, so we invite you to register your team today! You can find additional information about the competition on the registration pages and invite any questions you might have in preparation for the event.

Regardless of your background, this year's event will provide an excellent opportunity to have fun, learn, and test your ability to effectively navigate today's challenging cyber environments! In addition, it will also give you an opportunity to network with industry leaders needing skillsets that you will demonstrate during the competition! Best of luck as you prepare for the Cyber Cup Competition and we look forward to seeing you there!
