Cyberbit India is proud to present a new competitive cybersecurity league named the “Cybersecurity Champions League” focused on displaying India’s leading cybersecurity talent. The Cybersecurity Champions League, or CCL, is the first virtual league dedicated to cybersecurity professionals in the country. Throughout the course of the league season, contestants will be pitted against the best of their peers in a virtual corporate environment where real-world cyberattacks will take place.
The Cybersecurity Champions League is a multi-stage contest where contestants will have to identify incidents, contain damage, mitigate the attack, and ensure their network is protected from the attack occurring a second time, all within a given time limit. For those who are newer to cybersecurity, Cyberbit has collated a library of materials for them to build their skills on the CCL site. With the launch of this league, Cyberbit hopes to encourage more individuals to consider a career in cybersecurity, actively helping to close the cyber skills gap in India.
Winning teams will receive attractive prizes including a MacBook Pro, iPhone 11, Apple Watch, and many more for the top 50 teams! People who are working in corporates and managing SOC operations are eligible to participate in the contest. Registration to qualify for the CCL is now live and is open until August 28, 2020. Teams that wish to participate in the CCL must register on http://go.cyberbit.com/cybersecurity-champions-league/. Get ready to form the team and register!
“According to SANS SOC Survey 2019, Cybersecurity skills gap is the number #1 challenge for global organizations from the last 3 years. On top of it, India will have a shortage of one million Cybersecurity professionals by 2025 as per the DSCI study.” Said Mr. Rakesh Kharwal, Managing Director, India & Southeast Asia at Cyberbit. “Though today’s professionals have good theoretical knowledge, they face their first cybersecurity incident on the job. Through this contest, we want to do our bit in making the cybersecurity community more skilled and equipped by making them experience and mitigate real-life attacks in a safe environment. I urge cyber professionals to participate in this one-of a kind contest and spread the word in the cybersecurity community so that more and more get benefited from this initiative”.
