Cyber Practitioners & Students Accept the 2017 Cybersecurity Gaming Challenge at UNCC

  • October 06, 2017

Each year, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte hosts the Cybersecurity Symposium, bringing world class speakers together to discuss top security challenges, cutting edge technology and best practices for mitigating risk and defending the enterprise.

Drawing more than 600 attendees, the conference serves as a platform for important industry dialogue as well as a forum for cybersecurity students to engage with security experts and practitioners. Circadence® is honored to play a key role in this year’s conference by hosting the 2017 Live Gaming Café: Cyber Hunting from 10-4 p.m. Wednesday, October 11.

Hosted on Circadence’s AI-powered, next generation cybersecurity training platform, Project Ares®, the event will challenge cybersecurity professionals and students through individual and team play covering a broad set of skills from beginner to expert. Participants can choose from red or blue team scenarios, mini game and battle room challenges.

The team competition will feature a live event leaderboard showing mission status and points earned as participants engage in full-scale cyber missions in the Project Ares immersive, high-fidelity environment using real-world tools, such as Wireshark, Metasploit, Splunk and more.

The opportunity to engage future cyber leaders is an important part of Circadence Corporation’s ongoing efforts to bridge the cybersecurity skills gap and build a better trained, more highly skilled workforce.
