CyberStart Online Gaming Tournament Returns
Are you a student who likes online games and pizza? If so, are you also curious about a career in cybersecurity?
Join the ITS Information Security team for the CyberStart launch party (with pizza!) on Fri., Oct. 14, from 2:30-4:30 p.m. in Falk 100. Attendees will have the opportunity to try out the CyberStart online game and talk with our cybersecurity experts. You can RSVP online.
CyberStart is an online game for problem-solvers who welcome a challenge. Open to all students, CyberStart offers an opportunity to learn more about the cybersecurity profession, test your problem-solving skills and learn new technology.
During this year’s kickoff event, students will try out 12 challenges. Students interested in continuing can then sign up for the semester-long competition with prizes for top finishers and random drawings for participants who complete a minimum number of challenges.
In the inaugural competition, College of Engineering and Computer Science graduate student Weiling Wang G ’21 won CyberStart by more than 10,000 points. After winning the CyberStart competition, Wang joined Syracuse University’s Security Operations Center (SOC) as a student employee and currently works as a security engineer at TikTok.
“CyberStart reinforced my enthusiasm and passion for cybersecurity,” Wang said. “After [CyberStart], I also participated in some other capture the flag competitions. What I learned from these competitions will help me pursue my career in cybersecurity.”
