Compete in our monthly cybersecurity challenge

Competing to solve a challenge is a fun way to get your foot in the door in cybersecurity and learn how to protect yourself online. 

  • This challenge is open book and we encourage everyone to research the subject to help solve it.

  • We trust that it is the result of your own efforts; please avoid plagiarism. You can collaborate with others but the final answers should be in your own words. 

  • We ask that you list any online resources or subject matter expert opinions used to solve the challenge. Listing sources won't affect the evaluation of your response

  • The 2 best submissions will be rewarded with a $25 gift card and optionally recognized on our social media. At least one of the winners we select will be an aspiring professional or student.

  • Submission evaluation will be based on the level of correctness and clarity of explanation.
  • A new challenge should be posted the first weekday of the month and participants have until the end of the month to submit; winners and solutions will be posted by the 10th of the following month.
