Great prizes will ensure that players with the most potential can continue to develop and build their incident response and other cybersecurity skills after the competition. Prizes include a full year’s license for Immersive Labs cutting edge, interactive, online training content for the top 10 finalists, training at the Advanced Cyber Security Academy for the top 20, and six months use of the Immersive Labs Customer Academy for the top 200 players.
