Do you really know your way around networks? Do you think you can find security flaws on a local machine? Can you remotely take control of a service or analyze evidence to determine attacker activities?

NetWars-Tournament Play games are a collection of computer and network security challenges designed to represent real-world security issues, their flaws and their resolutions. Each player can follow an independent path based on individual problem solving skills, technical skills, aptitude, and creativity. The game is played in a fun but safe environment using the technology that drives our lives every day.

All students who register for a 5- or 6- day course will be eligible to play NetWars for Free. Register Now!
