SANS NetWars DoD Services Cup Championship

The SANS Institute is proud to host the SANS NetWars DoD Services Cup Championship online this year during SANS Cyber Defense Initiative® 2021.

The annual SANS NetWars DoD Services Cup Championship is a unique event tailored exclusively to members of the US Department of Defense. This year, SANS is inviting a five-member team from each of the following branches to represent their service: US Army, US Army Guard, US Army Reserve, US Air Force, US Air Force Guard, US Air Force Reserve, US Space Force, US Navy, US Marines, US Coast Guard, DISA, and DC3.

A Service Member’s Reception for all invitees will be held online before the Tournament begins on Thursday, December 16. The reception will feature special speakers and will serve as an orientation and kick-off to begin the Tournament. In the spirit of competition, and in order to ensure that no team has an unfair advantage, we will announce the type of NetWars being used for this Tournament closer to the start of the championship.
