The top scoring NY students from the Fall 2012 and Winter 2013 Cyber Quests challenges will be formally invited to compete in the NetWars Tournament at The Polytechnic Institute of New York University, Brooklyn, NY. NetWars is the hands-on, interactive learning environment with a focus on skills information security professionals use in their jobs every day. The Air Force relies on NetWars for its intermediate network warfare training program and military officers cannot graduate from the training program without high level mastery of NetWars.


NetWars covers topics such as system hardening, packet analysis, digital forensics, vulnerability assessment, and much more. But NetWars also has basic levels that enable young people to demonstrate they have the aptitude to excel and also gives them a fascinating real-world environment to demonstrate their skills.
