Virtual Cybersecurity Competition/Game made possible by Target
Build your portfolio, pump up your resume, add credibility to your LinkedIn profile, gain simulated real-world experience, and speak to the world of cybersecurity based on your National Cyber League (NCL) virtual competition/game experience!
WiCyS is pleased to announce a partnership with Target and International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP) to bring this cybersecurity competition/game training program to the WiCyS community and beyond!
This competition/game allows WiCyS and ICMCP players to showcase and build their skills through simulated real-world scenarios. After the game, players will receive an NCL scouting report that identifies player’s strengths/weaknesses. WiCyS and ICMCP members can then share scores on resumes and LinkedIn to showcase growth, progress, determination, grit, and glory!
