Global Cyberlympics is an online ethical hacking, computer network defense game, dedicated to finding the top computer network defense teams. Teams are made up of 4 to 6 players, and 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’ goal is to raise awareness towards increased education and ethics in information security through a series of cyber competitions that encompass forensics, ethical hacking and defense.
One key initiative for Global Cyberlympics is to foster an environment that creates child online protection through education. The mission statement of the Global Cyberlympics is “Unifying Global Cyber Defense through the Games.”
