About Global CyberlympicsGlobal CyberLympics is an international online cyber security competition, dedicated to finding the top computer network defense teams. This event tests the skills of information assurance professionals in teams of 4 to 6 people in the areas of ethical hacking, computer network defense and computer forensics. Each round serves as an elimination round until only winning teams remain. The top winning teams from every continent get invited to play the game live in person at the world finals.
Global CyberLympics aspires to create an opportunity for ethical hacking to be accepted, practiced and demonstrated without any discrimination, across all geographical boundaries – for the purpose of understanding what it takes to protect and secure critical information and assets. One key initiative for Global CyberLympics is to foster an environment that creates child online protection through education.
