The Competition involves a set of computer security puzzles and challenges that test your skills in areas such as reverse-engineering, memory corruption and cryptography. Each major discipline in security is tested, as well as a healthy dose of problem solving to find and nurture students with the aptitude and passion for cyber security.

Students can train and qualify to take part in the NCS Competition through taking part in Cyber FastTrack, and reaching the qualifying level. All qualified players will be contacted, inviting them to register to take part in the NCS Competition.

To qualify you must gain 15,000 points in CyberStart, and meet the eligibility and college enrolment verification requirements.
