How CYSEC NG works
CYSEC NG mirrors the US CyberPatriot competition, part of a major American STEM education programme presented by the Northrop Grumman Foundation and created by the US Air Force Association.

The CTF Hackathon competition is played by teams of between two to four people. Each team must delegate a team leader as the liaison between the organisers and the participants, and every team participant must be 26 years old or under when the game is played. The competition is open to anyone resident in Africa that meets the age requirements.

Each team must compete a series of online qualifying challenge rounds, which will challenge them to learn about networking, coding, penetration testing, and cyber security. Winning teams from our virtual competitions with higher points will be invited to compete in the National Final, a face-to-face competition which finds the ultimate champion for the year.
