Secure your spot in NSA's CyberSprint

Shut down a simulated security threat in our cyber competition

This fall, you have a chance to pit your critical thinking and technical skills against top students and recent grads across the country.

As the federal agency charged with foreign signals intelligence and information assurance, the National Security Agency (NSA) invites you to try out for the 2015 NSA CyberSprint, a challenge that asks you to solve a simulated security threat within 72 hours.

First, you'll need to complete a skills assessment to see if you have what it takes to solve difficult problems. Students can participate anytime between Oct. 28 and Nov. 2, but you will have only 8 hours to complete the assessment from initial login.

Registration is limited and goes live Tuesday, Sept. 29, so save the date and watch for further instructions via email!

Only the top 300 competitors will be invited to move on to the virtual CyberSprint, which will take place between Nov. 9 and 19.

If you’re one of the winners, NSA will recognize you and your school ... and take a serious look at your resume, if you’re interested in NSA as a career option.*
