Calling all friendly hackers – the government wants you!
The U.S. Cyber Challenge has kicked off round two of a contest for hackers who might work at your agency one day.
It’s the Cyber Quest competition, an invitation for competitors to break into a file and answer questions about it. The winners get to advance to a camp with hands-on training that culminates in a team competition.
Karen Evans, director of the U.S. Cyber Challenge, said the competition is a way to tap into future cyber talent using online games to attract participants.
