Announcing the 2019 Wicked6 Finalists
Not just another cyber competition
Cybersecurity meets eSports with a Cause
On August 8, 2019, six elite collegiate cyber teams go head-to-head in the thrilling environment of a Las Vegas esports arena. They’ll battle it out as they search for and defeat the foe, all while an avid audience of cybersecurity experts watches intently and shouts out their support.
And the proceeds? They go the Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit that promotes training, mentoring and more to advance women and girls in cybersecurity careers.
