National Cyber Analyst Challenge (NCAC) is divided into three phases of increasing challenging opportunities for learning and development.
- Form student teams (4-5 individuals) and identify faculty advisor: Fall 2017
- Students and faculty advisor registration ends December 15, 2017.
Phase I: Case analysis
Analyze and propose solutions
Late January/Early February 2018
Phase II: Workshop
Learn how to remedy and mitigate threats
Phase III: Finals
The finals will take place in Philadelphia, PA. Each school will receive a laptop. These laptops will contain the Challenge materials. Students should bring their own laptops loaded with any relevant tools needed for the Challenge. However, you will not have access to the internet so these items need to be pre-loaded on your laptop.
Please note: You will be provided Challenge materials on site. These materials may put your computer at risk. Therefore, we recommend making a complete backup before you arrive. The Challenge is not responsible for any damaged computers.
April 12-13, 2018, Philadelphia, PA
