Here’s how the ICL Americas Cyber Cup works:

Competition is between teams of three, comprised of individuals from the same organization. The tournament has been planned so that it will not interfere with your ongoing work. The qualifier round consists of three labs, estimated to take one hour each. Semi-finals and final rounds will consist of one live-fire exercise per round, simulating a complete cyberattack in a virtual security operations center (SOC).  Live-fire exercises are estimated to take up to four hours per exercise.  The tournament is entirely virtual; participants will receive login details to a cloud-based cyber range. Communication between team members, as well as support and moderation, will take place over Zoom.
