SANS is hosting the first ever Tournament of Champions where the best-of-the-best from past NetWars Competitions as well as the winners of this year's Cyber Defense Exercise (CDX), National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (NCCDC), CyberLympics and Cyber Patriot have been invited to face off. We have also invited some of the top high school and college students from the Cyber Camps and Cyber Foundations to participate as well. We expect to have some of the most capable security professionals in the country matching wits with each other in our ultimate tournament!
NetWars Tournament of Champions will be held at SANS CDI 2012 on December 12-13 at the Washington Hilton Towers.
Awards will be given for the top three professionals and the top three students. We will also be giving special awards based on individual achievements in the tournament.
