Cyber Florida to Host NCAE Cyber Games Finals
Cyber Florida at the University of South Florida is proud to host the national championship round of the NCAE Cyber Games on April 22 on the University of South Florida-Tampa campus.
Funded by a grant from the National Security Agency’s National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity (NCAE-C) program, NCAE Cyber Games is dedicated to inspiring college students to enter the exciting (and sometimes profitable!) realm of cyber competitions. Cyber competitions are a valuable addition to any college student’s resume, but they can be intimidating for first-timers. NCAE Cyber Games is creating a new style of collegiate cybersecurity competition for college students who have never competed before, where they can learn about cyber competitions in an environment focused on teamwork, building confidence, and growing their skills.
Now in its second year, the program has grown from about 500 competitors from 50 colleges and universities to 700+ competitors from more than 80 colleges and universities out of approximately 350 NCAE-C institutions.
Cyber Florida will host roughly 12o competitors from 11 regional winning teams to face off in a day-long competition to determine the Year 2 National Champions! The University of South Florida eSports crew will broadcast live the second half of the day on https://www.twitch.tv/ncaecybergames.
