Natoinal Cyber League

The National Cyber League (NCL) is an inclusive, performance-based, learning-centered collegiate cybersecurity competition. The NCL competitions, powered by Cyber Skyline, enable students to prepare and test themselves against practical cybersecurity challenges that they will likely face in the workforce, such as identifying hackers from forensic data, pentesting, and auditing vulnerable websites, and recovering from ransomware attacks. The NCL competitions are open to U.S. high school and college students.
